  • N-400 Criminal History and Petty Theft Exception

    Just had a quick question and hoping for some input. I was charged with gross misdemeanor theft back in 2010. I served no time (just probation), and the charge was dismissed and vacated (on rehabilitative grounds). I, at the time, had not been granted asylum. I was able to successfully asylum and my green card shortly thereafter, even with my criminal history. I was wondering if obtaining citizenship w/ this criminal history will be an issue? I have no other charges since 2010 (other than a passenger side seatbelt ticket). Since the maximum sentence for this crime is exactly 1 year, would I be eligible for the Theft Exception? Thank you.
