Hi.. To make the details clear, I live in Kentucky, I'll be 18 next month, and when I was 16 I was caught for petty theft (first and only time). I wasn't arrested with cuffs or anything but I assume I was processed the same way; the parents had to come pick me up and fill out some paperwork, then I was assigned a Court Designated Worker to meet with the next morning. She said because I was a good student in my high school (apparently she spoke to my principal) and because I had never been in trouble before, she offered me something called Juvenile Diversion, and informed me that by accepting the diversion agreement I would be placed on probation for 6 months and if I did not get in any more trouble, the petty theft would be "expunged" from my record when I turned 18 and that I would start with a "clean slate". I signed a paper accepting the agreement, and then completed the probation successfully and received a letter from her informing me my probation was finished and that I had completed it without violation of the agreement.
I am in a CNA class and a background check via Verified Credentials is required before students are allowed in the clinical facility where we will be practicing skills. We don't start clinicals until after I turn 18, so I am hoping to wait and get the background check done after my birthday in hopes of my record being clean by then? I'm not sure if a juvenile misdemeanor would even appear on a 48-dollar background check in the first place, but I'm really nervous about this. Any insight is appreciated.
