I was caught first time shop lifting in Georgia . I'm told I'll face yr of probation and 100 hrs of community server before they expunge it from public records . Can I file the Heb from a company ? What are the chances of getting Heb petition approved by luscious ? Or what the appropriate steps I need to take to get out of this ?
I agree with my colleagues. You should consult an experienced immigration attorney for this matter. You may schedule a consultation with an immigration lawyer in your area, my firm is handling these matters in New York.

If you are convicted as you described this is considered a crime involving moral turpitude and will impact your status in United States. You should work with a criminal defense lawyer and an immigration attorney to obtain a result in criminal proceedings that will not affect your immigration status.
thanks for clarifying the confusing terms. Your case sounds like a CIMT-Crime involving moral turpitude, i..e. a bad and deprived deed, i.e. theft. If you travel outside the US it could be a problem and make you inadmissible, ie not allowed to re-enter the US. Is the probation for 1 year? Try to get it under 1 year even if only 364 days. Consult a competent immigration attorney to carefully review the plea agreement.
