Is it a criminal record ?

If someone was stopped in US for drug possession, but let go afterward without any charges or anything. Do they have a criminal record ?

How do you check if you have a criminal record in US if you are not American citizen?

    To have a criminal record, a person must appear in a court of law and either plead guilty or have a Judge pronounce guilt in a criminal case. From the information you listed above, you have no criminal record since you never went to court.

    If you were let go with no charges, then it is not on your record, however if you got a citation or ticket, it is on your record.
