On 11-22-15 I got arrested for a shoplifting charge 2c 20-11b(1) got down graded to 2c 20-11c(4), plead guilty paid 158$ fine, took condition dismissal, after 12 month probation, case dismissed and record got expunged in 2017
I am planning to accept a full time offer with whom I am working as contractor for the past 4 yrs. Interviews, BG and drug tests came clean
For H1 transfer, in future employer’s attorney website there is a question.
- Have you or any family member ever been arrested, charged, convicted, fined, or imprisoned for violating any laws (even if expunged or dismissed)? Yes/No (If yes, please explain briefly).
Specifically they r asking expunged/dismissed cases also, not sure what to answer.
If I say No, what consequences I may face from USICS?
Is there any chance of RFE / Denial for expunged records?
If I say Yes, What explanation I’ve to write?
After the incident I applied for H1 extension on 12-22-15 with my current employer, it got approved for 3 yrs (4-1-16 to 3-31-19 ) Please advise
