Thank you. I now understand that this peson is not a felon but is there a legal term or description for someone who behaves in this way?
Will KY or is KY trying to find her?
If, in the future, this person applies for a job in Florida and the prospective employer does a background check, will the arrest for shoplifting, the jail time served until released on bond, and the fact that this person did not appear in court on the designated date be revealed?
If so, then, the prospective employer may contact the state of KY about this person's whereablouts. Is this correct?
