Will they use my juvenile record against me?

I got locked up a lot as a kid. Now I'm 22 and I caught a assault case from this guy I got in a fight with at a bar. Are they going to bring my juvenile records up at court or are those really sealed?

    The prosecutor and judge will be aware of your previous record and it may influence their attitude and the plea hat is offered but unless you injured someone it will be reduced to a Disorderly Conduct or dismissed with an ACD. You must learn to avoid getting arrested and that involves good decision making and good communication skills.

    The prosecutor will be able to see it. So, it will impact the prosecutor's plea offer. The jury will not hear about it, unless you take the stand and begin to make claims contradicted by your record.
