How to phrase a misdemeanor conviction for larceny in the best way on a lease agreement?
Topic: Employment application convicted
June 26, 2019 / By Eliane Question:
I am filling out an application for an apartment that I really would like to be accepted for. Toward the end of the app. it ask if I have been convicted of any felonies or misdemeanors and I was convicted of a misdemeanor for larceny when I was 17. Three friends and I broke into our high-school to screw a with a teachers room that we disliked. We did that and that was supposed to be the end of it but one of the other guys on the way out saw the video projector in the middle of the room and wanted to take it. We were in a rush to get out so no one told him not to, we were just like "whatever, lets go!" So eventually when we were turned in the only thing we were charged with was larceny and we had to serve 20 hours community service and pay $4000 for the projector even though it was recovered from the guys house undamaged. So this is a pretty horrible sounding story that we stole $4000 dollars from a public school. How should i describe this conviction on the three lines provided on the application. I'm not sure how to take the punch out stealing from a school. I'm desperate for this apartment because I will be saving $150 from what I am paying now which is slightly more that half my income.
I was a minor during the break in but we were not in court until about 8 months later so we were all tried as adults. I was the youngest and turned 18 three months before the trial.

I've never seen a question about a criminal record on a rental application. I don't think you have much to worry as far renting a place to live.
I would seriously consider going back to in court and trying having your criminal record expunged considering your age at the time of the crime and if you haven't had any problems with the law since then. It would probably help you for employment purposes.

I would describe it as a high-school prank that got out of hand, and a mistake that you have no desire to repeat.

Originally Answered: Does criminal complaint marked "adjudication withheld" and "dismissed with prejudice" count as a conviction?
Plea - Not Guilty
Disposition - Dismissed with Prejudice
Dismissal Reason - Adjudication Withheld
Dismissed with Prejudice means the charges were dismissed without prosecution and the prosecutor was prohibited from placing charges again for the same incident; dismissed w/o prejudice means that charges could be reinstated if more evidence is found.
Adjudication withheld would indicate deferred adjudication.
You are at risk by not noting this incident and fully explaining it. You should consult an attorney for how to proceed, or a local law school may offer free advice.
