Typically, convictions as a first offender minor are usually deferred or delayed so that it will not appear on your criminal record once you perform all probationary conditions or obligations of the court. In most cases, once you become age 18, your juvenile record is sealed from the public so the conviction will not appear for job and school purposes. However, because the rules of juvenile convictions vary by state, you or your parents/guardians may want to contact a local criminal defense attorney in your area for further guidance in your state.
