    To make it short and sweet i was 17 when i got caught smoking weed in public. I was taken in the station, fingerprinted and had to wait for my mom to pick me up. I had teen court a month later and i was to do 16hrs of community service and a drug and alcohol abuse class. After completion my record was to be expunged which it was.

    Need some help answering the questions below:

    23. Have you EVER been arrested,cited, or detained by any law enforcement officer for any reason?

    I selected yes.

    24. Have you ever been charged with committing, attempting to commit, or assisting in committing a crime or offense?

    I am confused on what to put here since i really don't know if i was ever charged or not.

    25. Have you ever been convicted of a crime or offense?

    Not sure what to put for this because of my incident. But i would guess and say "no"? Since i did what they required me to do and my record was cleared?

    Also, what would i put as the outcome of my disposition?
    No charges filed / charges dismissed?

    I don't have any of the documents from that time so i am not exactly sure which one it is. I tired to get a police report but they don't have it. I went to district court and had my record checked and it came out clean.

    Answer yes and provide all of the facts that you have, including the unavailability of records.
