As long as your NOT "convicted" of the crime, it will not show up in a criminal record check, and employers only ask if you have been "convicted" of any crimes. Most times when a person is charged with shoplifting, they normally don't get "convicted" of it. (SD)


yes you can if you were charged with a felony then you would have a problem. most Job Applications ask only if you have committed a felony. you should not have a problem. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- On job application they can only ask if you have been "convicted" of a crime, if you were charged but "not convicted" or if it was dropped to something lower then a misdemeanor, you can say you were NOT CONVICTED.

Now if you were caught shoplifting and went to court, and found guilty of a "misdemeanor shoplifting", then you would or should say YES to the question. Believe it or not, some employers may find your "new" honesty good, but I'm sure many would be scared you may steal from them too.

Your best bet is to go get a police records check on yourself to see how you need to answer that question.
