Your son or daughter gets arrested and they are underage, a minor, a juvenile, whatever your state happens to call it. They are under 18, under 17, under 16, depending upon your state. What's going to happen with that information? Who gets to have that information? First of all, it's important to know that across the United States, the juvenile court records are confidential. They cannot be released to your child's High School. They cannot be released to your child's college. That information is not going to go to their future employers. Except, the question could be asked if your son or daughter is applying for a job which deals with National Security, that deals with security. That may need to be disclosed. That's a question that needs to be answered at the time. For regular employment, for regular school, that's confidential information and no one has access to it.
