  • (Possible) Criminal record

    hi, im looking into starting a cadetship soon but i have a problem: just after i turned 17 i got arrested for shoplifting, i got taken to the police station and they said they where going to take my prints, my photo, details and question me then send me a letter saying what will happen to me, they took my photo and my details but nothing else, then let me go. its been over a year now and i haven't get any letters saying i am getting charged or getting a formal warning or any other type of punishment, however the shop sent me a letter saying i am banned from their stores for some time and if i steal from them/go into any of their stores they will press charges or something along the lines of that, will this affect me being able to get a US visa for my cadetship ? Thanks for any help, and please don't judge as i have definitely learned from my mistake.

    We are unable to provide legal advice regarding the US visa process, only they are able to tell you if it will affect you. please have a look at the London embassy website: (if your from the UK).

    There are numerous threads already regarding arrests / convictions and the US visa process, we suggest you have a read of some of these as although they are all different, the answer remains the same.
