I think you are talking about a civil demand notice you received by mail ordering you to pay the $200.00 If you don't pay it, it may go on your "credit record", not your "criminal record".
Years ago, when a store that wanted to teach you a lesson for stealing they had to call the police, and tie up courts, even if you stole something less then a dollar, not to mention the waste of their own time dealing with you. With the (somewhat new) Civil Demand Laws, retail stores normally give all Shoplifters these Civil Demand Notices regardless if they call the police or not. This way if you stole something little, it will teach you a lesson, plus help them recover money to pay for the time they spent with you.
When the store receive this money, they normally spend it back into security. So, it's like the Shoplifters help pay for the security that catches them.
If you weren't placed under actual arrest by a law enforcement officer, there will not be a record.
The case will be dismissed for "Want Of Prosecution." However, if you were turned over to the police by the store, and were "booked," (formally arrested and entered into the arrest register) even if the disposition of the case is 'dismissed,' the arrest will still remain on record.
Suspension, expulsion, arrest for possesion, criminal record, jail time....
A record of your arrest is a permanent record.
The offense of shoplifting is LARCENY. If the offense occurred after your 18th birthday it will always remain on your record.
It sounds like you handled the entire thing through the store's lawyers. Despite the "warning" if you were NOT arrested by the police, taken into custody and placed on the arrest book, you do NOT have a criminal record.
If you are now over 18 years of age, your record is sealed to the general puyblic regardless of WHAT the situation was.
Yes, your record will be cleared when you turn 16 in the UK for shoplifting if you had been charged earlier when you were 14.
That will depend on where you are, in terms of what the laws are in your area, and things like how much was stolen and if someone has a previous record of shoplifting.
You'll need to apply for a visa in order to travel to Algeria, but a shoplifting record should not be an issue, assuming you're not on probation.
Yes. At least in this state you will be convicted for first time shoplifting. Frequently a way exists to get the conviction removed from your record if you remain clean for a period of time afterward. If you do not, the conviction is not removed from your record.
no. it stays on your record until the day you die. everything does.
In the state of Washington, a shoplifting charge can stay on your record between two years and forever. It will all depend on the amount, the degree and which court it went through.
No arrest record for this incident has been located.
Criminal convictions do not go away. It is a part of your permanent record. You can apply to have your record expunged.
Criminal records are permanent.
First you should have a lawyer to advise you. After that it is usually up to the judge and you can't guarantee what an individual judge will decide.
Yes it is still on your record.
If the offense occurred after your 18th birthday, it will become a permanent part of your criminal history record.
That depends on the laws of your country. You have not told us this so we can not be more specific.
No. Algeria does not like thieves.
