    The case should have been dismissed or reduced to a violation which would be sealed unless you waived that. You would not have a criminal record for any first offense Petty Larceny unless you plead guilty to a crime. In any big city the prosecutor would offer an ACD dismissal. Get a Certificate of Disposition from the clerk or pay for a background check to see if you have a criminal record.

    The theft will remain on your record indefinitely until you hire an attorney to help you expunge it. If this is your only criminal charge, there is a chance of having it removed from your criminal record.
