I'm from the Middle East. In 2015, I traveled to Germany and some other European countries for a month. In the last days in Berlin, my friend and I did something stupid and stole something small, just to find out whether we would be caught; we were drunk. We were, and the police recorded the offence but, because it was our first offence, we were free to go, but we had to sign a police document.
I have been accepted at universities in Italy for my Master's, but I am afraid to apply for a visa at the Embassy. Is a person's history shared between Schengen countries? Will Italy give me student visa or would I be refused because of the German police record?
