In 2002, I was arrested for being with someone that had stolen something (worth about $5) from a store. Anyways, I was arrested for supposedly being an accomplice. The officer dropped the charges after I was brought in to the station. But he did tell me that I would have to goto court and pay a fine or whatever. I went to court..and I had to pay a fine for a township ordinance. I paid the fine. Now my question is... when filling out applications for law schools, will this extremely affect the decision? I was actually going to get a copy of my police record and see what exactly it says on there. If it says anything at all about this, I was going to see if I can get it expunged and cleared from my record. But hopefully there is nothing on my record. Also, if I have to get it expunged, can I answer no to the questin about being charged with a crime on the applications? Since this is so minor, I was just considering explaining everything on the application also... But im not sure on which is the best route to take here regarding this... Thanks.
