    Oh man, I got mad just reading that. If you were going to get yourself charged over him, you should have just given him a solid beating.

    And yes, you should have told the police when he stole from you.

    Haha, I think it would be nice to tell his friends what a pussy that douchebag is. Pranking you constantly but as soon as you do something, he rats you out? How low is that... I would laugh so hard at his face, I'd need a chiro to get my face straight again. :P

    Stealing roomate denies it, no proof, no charges, OP probably leaves house in embarrassment well before he's ready. Last part is a stretch but he strikes me as afraid of confrontation. I mean, confessing to a cop over painting a guitar? It's not something they're going to call the CSI for - You say no, there's no proof: case closed.

    So on the day I moved out, I spray painted his guitar. This lead to him filling out a police report and I eventually admitted to the act. While being questioned during the investigation. They sent me home and said "We will contact the victim and ask if he wishes to press charges"

    I later talked to the victim and offered to pay for the guitar if he chose not to press charges, he signed something saying he can not legally re-open the case. And on some sort of writing that has yet to be made clear to me, I am going to pay him $800.

    My question is....did I just ruin my life? Will I ever be able to get an IT job? Will I have a record even though he is not pressing charges? Should I just give up schooling? I am in a very mentally un-safe place atm and im scared for my future, any advice or information would be helpful. Thank you.
    Reconciliation of the parties removes criminal liability.
    That being said, you will not be held responsible for the crime of property destruction, as you've payed off the damage before the court ruled the final verdict.
    It's also not going to be considered criminal antecedent, since reconciliation is a means of removing criminal liability.

    TL;DR : you are safe. No need to worry about anything, but your own stupidity.

    ps: If I were in this situation, I'd have contested the charges in court, invoking mitigating circumstances of the
    complainant previous misdemeanors. Worst case scenario, I would have been given an administrative liability of either
    -a warning
    -administrative fine, but of a lower quantum.

    Why did you stoop to his level? And why, if you thought he was stealing from you, didn't you contact police about it?

    You'll be fine, but in future use the proper avenues to deal with theft, not just petty crimes.

    Reporting a crime isn't tattling. If you don't like him stealing then cause a big fucking problem over it so that they want him out instead of getting some petty revenge. Confrontation or reporting this to the police likely would've avoided this absurd situation.
