I was arrested tonight with class C petty theft under 50

I was arrested tonight with class C petty theft under 50 dollars. In a desperate moment at cash register I realized I wasn't gonna have enough and I panicked and embarrassed because people I knew where behind me. So I covered couple items under my purse and tossed 2 conditioners in my purse... I got caught , I was only in front of the cashier... I panicked.., police came took me to jail, my mother came and paid the fine ... Does this make me guilty?? Never gave me options, I never saw a citation with court date. This is my first offense!!

Yes I need some advice, but do I have to pay a lot just to get some advice? JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location. Customer: I'm in Tennessee JA: Has anything been filed or reported? Customer: Yes JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you? Customer: NoI am currently on unsupervised probation/diversion for petty theft under $500. I have made all my payments, done all of the community service, and completed the shoplifting class I was required to take so I was able to be put on unsupervised. Earlier today I was given a citation for being in a friend's vehicle where there was possession of marijuana one blunt that was 0.5 grams. I don't have money to afford a lawyer for this as I'm only 20 and in school and my job barely supplies hours of work. So I have no idea what to do. I made a mistake being in that car, and I will never put myself in that situation again but I don't want to go to jail and I really can't afford to pay more fines so I just need to know if there's any way I can avoid this since it was not my car I was in. I know it is probably going to be a probation violation if I call my probation officer and I'm scared she will send me to jail because of this and then I will no longer be able to be on diversion and I will have a record. I just don't know how to proceed from here!Detail Required: LOW; Urgency: LOW

I was convicted of a first time DUI in Louisiana in 2011 and

I was convicted of a first time DUI in Louisiana in 2011 and was eligible for Article 894 treatment. I am concerned about whether the conviction will show up on employer background check in the future. Under 894 the records are supposed to be confidential unless arrested for second offense which I have not been arrested. I purchased two online criminal background checks on myself recently and also purchased a copy of my official record from the LA department of public safety and corrections, motor vehicle division. All reports show no record of my 2010 arrest or 2011 conviction. Does this mean I will not have to deal with this issue in an employment background check?
