It was a charge of petty theft. I was 16 years old and in Pennsylvania. After the incident I was sent home while I was told a police report was made. A week later I had to go to the police department where I saw my juvenile citation where it said I was charged with petty theft, no fingerprints either. The police department referred me to a community youth aid panel, where I completed things such as an essay and showed how I learned how it affects the community. After completing my youth aid panel obligations I was informed that my record would be expunged and charges dismissed. As far as I know no courts were involved, but I'm not sure. I am 19 years old now and this occurred in Berks countyAnd just to be clear, the circumstances I have explained would be an example of NOT being an adjudication of delinquency? Is deferred adjudication good for me in this case? Also according to the panels mission statement: For those who do not, their entry into the formal system only causes a backlog of cases, increases the stigma associated with “being arrested”, and creates a permanent criminal history for the juvenile offender.
