I was convicted of petty larceny in NY. I was convicted of disorderly conduct PENEL CODE 240.20 on 05/25/2006 in NEW YORK . The actual arraignment charges applied were 126.96.36.199.
I performed 6 days of community service. Paid some $75. After a 1 year (5-26-2007) the charges were expunged. I have disposition letter from the NY court.
When I applied for my green card in July 2006 , in the I-485 / green card file I revealed that I was charged, convicted and arrested and my charges were expunged. I got my green card in August 2007 on the bases of VAWA (Violence against women act).
Now, I have been living in Maryland for the last 3 years.(Since September 2007)
I have applied for neutralization.
I am scared that I shall not be deported or citizenship should not be denied because of my conviction which is disposed almost 4 years old.
I have no charges against me after that incident.
I am filing my tax returns every year.
Do you think I can still be denied the citizenship? Or I can be deported ?
I would appreciate your response.
