    If you get in trouble at 16 & get put on probation then turn 17 & your now an legal adult in Missouri & get caught shop lifting a bottle of vodka and are locked up for 24 hours so you get a bail? Or do you wait for the 24 hours an then would they go to Juvie or stay in jail?

    It depends on the laws that apply to your case and the policies of the court and prosecutor. You can talk with your public defender about this. Good luck.

    It depends on the court you go to. If you stay in juvenile court, usually there's no bail available for minors (under 18). If you go to adult criminal court, bail may be a possibility. Good luck.

    That depends on the specific laws where this happened and the exact circumstances of what happened. If you google the name of the state where this occurred and "definition of sexual harassment" you'll get more information on this. Good luck.

    Hi, My name is Bradley and I'm 22 years old. I currently reside in Florida. I have an important question to ask you. When I was 16 I got arrested in Florida for shop lifting. I was released to my grandparents and I never went to juvenile court, but I went through a diversion program where I completed 50 hours of community service and did 3 nights of jury duty and I passed the drug test. Eventually, my charges were dropped. Now I want to join the police force and it's been my dream since I was a kid. Will this disqualify me from becoming a police officer? I was told that was I turn 18 (I'm 22 now) that it'll erase forever.

    Dear Anon: It most likely will not disqualify you, but you need to look to the policies of the police department as well as the laws in your state. To find out if there is anything on your record, you could try contacting the court and request a copy of your record. Since you were a minor and you completed diversion, most likely there is nothing on your record but every state has its own laws on the matter. Good luck.
