I am 23 years old and will be graduating from college in May and will be looking for job when that time comes. I will also be continuing my graduate studies after to get my MBA.
My problem is I made an idiotic mistake 2 years ago and stole a DVD from a major retail store and was caught. I was taken into the office at the retail store, they took my license information, said they were going to put me in "their system" and would be getting papers in the mail. A couple months passed and I had not received anything so I called the magistrate to see if they had any information and they did not, no court date, record, anything. So I thought that was the end, just a slap on the wrist. But I just checked a broad background check and it is showing up as Retail theft-mdse.Thank you gentleman, Mr. Pelger was right, I was convicted in absence as they sent my summons to the wrong address. I am now in the process of appeal and will be retaining counsel for this matter to ensure the process goes smoothly and know every option available to me.
