I do not know whether you can see my questions on justanswer with another lawyer before. I was caught shoplifting on August,2011. I asked them that is it affect my social record? they said no, only on Walmart's record. They explained that the value of item what was stolen more than $50, so I have to go to jail. They called police but the police did come so they let me leave. Before I left, I asked them again so no effect on my social record when I aplly for a job in the future? they said no.
After that 2 weeks, I received a letter require that I gotto pay the fine $200. I paid.
I have been here 2 and a half year, and I can aplly for citizenship on 2014 ( I came to America on 2009).
Does shoplifting effect me in the future? what will it effect me?
