i got arrested for shoplifting when i

i got arrested for shoplifting when i was 15. i was under pressure from friends, but i'm the one who did it. only my parents, sister, and two old friends with whom i don't speak anymore know about this. my friends today joke about stealing or shoplifting and the stupidity of the people who do it, but i could never confess. i worry constantly that someone will find out, or that i'll have to answer to my 15-year old actions. it was a mistake i'm trying to forget, but i'm afraid i never will.

  • You start fresh at 18!

  • If you were arrested but did not go to court then I wouldn't worry about it. Otherwise yeah it'll be on your juvenile record but you can get that cleared. Put it behind you, don't let it keep you from becoming a better person.

  • ah who gives a s***. i used to steal s*** to. it was fun. they just dont understand

  • don't listen to the douche above me, yeah you shouldn't do a lot of things, but you did.

    okay, so your record will be expunged when you're eighteen. you're lucky you did it when you were still considered a child, hopefully you won't f*** up again.

    keep it a secret, i doubt many people would care about it if they found out, but don't risk it. some would hold it against you. lots of kids shoplift, it's bad, but it goes away when you're eighteen.

  • you shouldnt get caught
