If you had the charges expunged through FDLE you can put on your application that you have not been arrested. In addition, if you were a juvenile these charges should not generally be available for joe public to view.
However, if you went through teen court the state probably never filed a petition against you and therefore in my opinion there is nothing on your record to begin with. You should not have any problems from a backgRound check.
The information presented is for information purposes only based on the information provided. An attorney client relationship is not formed.
Just because you completed teen court does not mean your record was expunged unless someone did an expungments for you. There is a mechanism for juveniles to expunge diversion cases but not sure if you did. Please look into whether your charge was expunged. Ask your parents. As far as right to hire, I believe an employer can refuse to hire you bc of arrest. In many instances a fast food should not be able to see your misdemeanor juvenile theft charge. Good luck to you!
