    You were 17, a minor? Wouldn't your juvenile records be sealed? I know folks who where in trouble when they were under 18 and then had background checks done that turned up clean.

    Call the IL BON for the 411.

    Good luck.

    I have a very similar story to yours. When I was 16 I was arrested, finger printed, got my photo taken, and had to pay a fine when I was caught shoplifting. Long story short, I could basically say the same exact things that you've said when it comes to this. After doing some google searching, I came across this post. I understand its a few years old, but I was wondering if you wouldnt mind telling me what had happened with your background check. Did it end up showing up? And what state are you from? I know its slightly different from every state.
