I was arrested for shoplifting at a retail store I worked for, for four years. I was always a good store employee and no one expected this out of me. All of the managers liked me a lot. I just made a real dumb mistake. I was arrested four months ago. I still have no convitions. Could this mean that my charges could possibly be dropped or that everything has not been processed yet. Also, will this arrest show up on a background check at another retail store. I have read and heard that an arrest can show up and sometimes it can be hidden only for a police to view past arrests. Does anybody know what could be happening here?
I do have a good lawyer but he says that he hasnt seen any evidence yet or has any additional details for me.
