    A friend shoplifted 7 years ago but was not caught. He wants to file for his citizenship. For the question, "have you committed a crime but was not arrested". What should he answer? Yes. Story:
    He was 13 years old at time of incident, item taken was worth $20. He felt terrible of incident that night told his parents, they made him return item to store next day, owner of store shook hands and aprreciated his honesty. NO ARREST, OWNER SAID EVERYTHING WAS FINE. NO OTHER INCIDENT. ONLY INCIDENT IN LIFE. INS NEEDS TO KNOW ANYWAY, MY GUESS IS YES. ALWAYS BE HONEST WITH INS. ALWAYS TELL THE TRUTH. REPORT ON APPLICATION? CAN HE BE DENIED?

      This is a personal choice. I do agree to be honest at all times but IMO telling the truth would do more harm than good.

      As there is no record of the 'crime', INS cannot find out. And because there is no record it is as if it never occured, so it can't be a crime in the first place.

      If that was the only thing withholding him I wouldn't answer yes, though this is my opinion.
