Legal Question

Hi, my name is Sarah. My sister and I got a shoplifting misdemeanor on our record a couple years ago. We were at rite aid and took some products and tried to leave but we're caught. We fully cooperated from that point on. Between the both of us it was less than 50$, and on our records its split. Because we gave the product back and fully cooperated and the low amount, the employees at rite aid didn't call the police. They filled out some paperwork and let us go. Before we left we asked if it was gonna be on our records. They said it wouldn't be on our records cause they didn't call the cops. A few years later my sister got a job, they ran her background check and then had to let her go. That's when we found out that this was on our records. We found out that at the Santa Ana sheriff's office that the reason it was on there was because we missed a court date... But we never received any thing for a court hearing. Is there anyway to get this off or records, since we were never notified of the court date?
