I was caught shop lifiting at a local grocery store in Grand Chute County, Wisconsin. Police was contacted and they issued me and my wife a Municipal Citation. The citation was issued at the store. the ticket states the violation as "Retail theft 1st" on my wife's citation and on mine "Party to retail Theft" (Violate ORD no. 7.02 / 943.50). They issued me ticket for $177 and informed me that I cannot go to that store again for 1 year.
My question is what exactly will be on my and my wife's record ? I am a foreign worker working in this country on H1b visa. Does it affect my future green card / visa processing ?
Should I consult any lawyer in this case ?Thank you very much in advance for the answer. Also what exactly shows up on my record when some company runs a background check ?
