I'm applying for more graduate programs trying to find the right fit. I am 29 now. When I was 18 and considerably more foolish, I thought it was a good idea to steal chapstick and of course I was caught and charged w/theft 3. I entered into a diversion program, completed it successfully and paid fines. When I was about 25 I hired a lawyer to have it expunged. |
I just want some reassurance that when I am applying for these programs that if I mark 'no, I have never been convicted/charged/etc with a crime' that they will not be able to find my expunged charge and consider me a lying liar who lies. I assume I'll be fine and that it what expungement is there for, but I turn to you folks for validation.
Will they be able to find this old theft 3 charge, or am I worrying too much and everything will be okay? Thank you!
