I just typed up my criminal addendum. I think it's fine. I tried to stick to the facts. Let me know what you guys think.
Criminal History Addendum
On March 24, 2000, at the age of 17, I was arrested, along with 22 other high school students, by the ___ Police Department (state name) and charged with being a minor in possession of alcohol. I appeared in ____ District Court the following week (3/28/04), and I was not convicted. I was placed on pretrial probation and informed that I was to enroll in the “Youthful Offender Substance Abuse Program”. Six months later, my probation was terminated and I was discharged by the Probation Department.
On March 15, 2002, at the age of 19, I was charged by the ___ Police Department with threatening to commit a crime (date of offense: 1/14/02). I made my appearance in ___ District Court on April 19, 2002, and I was not convicted. I was informed that I was to stay away from the complainant, and I was placed on pretrial probation. One year later, my probation was terminated and I was discharged by the Probation Department.
I am 22 years old now and I will be 23 by the time I enroll in law school. My first charge was nearly five years ago and my second charge was nearly 3 years ago. Also, I was not convicted of either of these misdemeanors. I feel that I have put these transgressions in my past and also that I have learned from them and matured since these incidents.
Date: March 15, 2002
Charged With: Threatening to commit a crime
Court: ______ District Court
Disposition: 1 year of pretrial probation
This is how i was told to do it.
