If it happened while you were a juvenile in the State of Florida, then the juvenile record should not be able to be opened except by law enforcement nor should the juvenile judgment and sentence be used against you in the future. Once you become an adult you can check the FDLE website where in detail you can find how to have a charge sealed or expunged.

I don't know how old you are, but if you are 17, you are an adult in the eyes of the law. If you are truly under-age, there may be a way to seal your juvenile criminal record later, depending on which state this occurred in. But if you are 17 or older and you were charged as an adult, then there is no way to seal your record or expunge a conviction for petty theft from your criminal record. Hire a criminal defense attorney to represent you. Your attorney can work out a deal with the prosecutor to keep this off your record.
