Legal Question

Asked on: 8/12/13, 9:10 pm

I was charged in juvenile court with a delinquent acts, one of which would have been a felony crime if I were an adult. All of the proceedings were handled in juvenile court and I was given a stay of adjudication. All charges were dismissed after I completed my probation.

A job application asks if I "have ever been arrested or charged with a crime?" It does not specify juvenile or adult, just says "have you ever"...

Do I have to list those "acts" that would have been "crimes" if I were an adult? Or are they legally and technically not crimes and instead delinquent acts, which would then not have to be listed? Thank you for your time.
