Ok, I'm a little concerned. I was arrested for a felony when I was 16. The policeman overcharged me to say the least (I was throwing eggs). I went to court with a decent lawyer. We struck a deal with the prosecutor to wipe away the charge as long as I stayed out of trouble for 6 months. I did. I was never charged. I was only arrested. So my question is, when I apply to medical school and a background check is done, will the arrest record appear? Since I was a minor when it occurred I think it will be expunged when I am 21, but I am not sure. Should I get a lawyer around that time to make sure there is no record of it ever occuring?
