When I was 15 years old I was caught shoplifting. I got a ticket, had to attended mandatory classes and got booked in and finger printed by the police. I payed the ticket, finished the mandatory classes and went to court. But not judge ever saw me. They said my name was not there. I signed a paper to show that I had appeared at court and they said I was ok to go home. I am18 almost 19 years old now and I know I made a big mistake which I regret.
My question is I recently got a background check and it says I was charge with 488 PC on 06/12/2009 disposition unknown.
Does it mean I was convicted? and I have a criminal record? even though no judge convicted me to. To add to my miserable life I am an undocumented student who wants to apply for deferred action. Can I apply?
