    Yes

  2. froggiesjoytalk says:

    It depends on what they stole

  3. mcdannells says:

    Yes….Keep hands off of what is not yours….

  4. Sydney says:

    I believe stealing is a federal offense..so I would think that there would be a criminal record.

    Stealing is bad..very bad..shame on you.

  5. fr_chuck says:

    yes, once they are convicted, there will be a record of them.
    If you get a suspended sentence, then it will not show up, as long as you do the provisions of the sentence, but in most cases, yes, now you have a criminal record

  6. Dennis Fargo says:

    There are programs in some states that will expunge a first time record. Or you can plea bargain to a ticket. Get a good lawyer.

  7. Tneciter says:

    If you were caught and arrested, then you will have a record, but if you got caught, lets say by a store and released, then you will not have a record. !8 and over.and you are considered an adult, so that is what makes the deference

    stealing is a crime , 1. petty larceny
    a term used in many states for theft of a small amount of money or objects of little value (such as less than $500). It is distinguished from grand larceny, which is theft of property of greater worth and a felony punishable by a term in state prison. Petty larceny is a misdemeanor with a maximum punishment of a term in the county jail. States which only use the term "larceny" often treat theft of smaller amounts as a misdemeanor in charging and sentencing.
    2.grand larceny
    the crime of theft of another’s property (including money) over a certain value (for example, $500), as distinguished from petty (or petit) larceny in which the value is below the grand larceny limit. Some states only recognize the crime of larceny, but draw the line between a felony (punishable by state prison time) and a misdemeanor (local jail and/or fine) based on the value of the loot.

    SURE WILL AND IT STAYS THERE

  10. BLUE says:

    NOT REALLY, THERE IS SOMETHING GOING ON THAT NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED AND FAST. IF THIS IS A REALITY THEN YOU OR SOME NEEDS TO GET A GRIP AND FAST. IT IS APPARENT THAT YOU REALIZE YOU HAVE A PROBLEM THAT NEEDS ATTENDING TO. TAKE CARE OF IT NOW GET SOME HELP. AND MAYBE YOU WON’T END UP WITH A CRIMINAL RECORD.

    YUP

  12. ochomeaga says:

    Normally yes. Depends on what they stole….If you stole something, lets say from the popular retail giant (which I will not name) and it did not cost over X amount of dollars then you may not have a record, depending on if the manager is a donkey butt or not

  13. Josie826 says:

    You betcha! Unless they are sentenced under a deferred sentence, which the court is allowed to do. The deferred sentence means that the person is put on a type of probation and must abide by all rules and regulations set forth by the court for a period of time (6 months, 9 months, 1 year). After the time is up and the court determines that the person has fulfilled his or her obligation and gotten into no more trouble, the court can dismiss and possibly expunge the record. The record will still be available to law enforcement, but a prospective employer will not have access to the information. It will not show up on your record and basically it’s like it never happened. In Michigan, its called Holmes Youthful Trainee Act (HYTA). Its a one time thing and cannot be recommended if the person has any prior criminal record. Also, when I say "no more trouble" that means not even a speeding ticket. It is usually not allowed in the case of serious felonies, ie. armed robbery, rape, assault with intent to murder, etc. Sooooooooo, I hope that this person caught stealing learned their lesson and throws themselves on the mercy of the court, if they have no prior criminal record, as an adult or a minor, as that is taken into account also.

  14. Darby says:

    Well, there is a difference between being caught and being convicted. It depends on the value of the item stolen and what the judge rules. If this is you, check with the clerk of the court to see if you have a record. If you do, get an attorney and find out what it takes to get your record expunged. It’s worth the effort as it relates to future employment.

  15. perseus says:

    Would depend on severity of the crime.For a minor theft,the culprit might get only a caution.Nonetheless that person would hae a criminal record.So the answer to your question is YES

  16. Mzscorpio30 says:

    It will go on record, but you can try to get it expunged off of your permanent record depending if this is your first offense and the state you live in.

  17. 2feEThigh says:

    if the case goes to the court, then there will be a record of it.

  18. lordkelvin says:

    Only if they are convicted

  19. Runescape Master says:

    Yes it does. If the person stole something over 300$ it is a midemeanor. If they stole anything over that it is a FELONY. DON’T STEAL

  20. scruffycat says:

    I hope so.

  21. newbiegranny says:

    If convicted in a court of law…. yes.

    The hypothetical person (you?) should not have stolen anything and should have been taught by their hypothetical parents to respect the property of others.

    Best Wishes,

    Sue

  22. David B says:

    yes

  23. Herbert West III says:

    Yes, the universal age of Emmancipation is 18. Anything done past this age usually is a matter of Criminal Record.
