Disorderly Conduct Misdemeanor

Asked 5 months ago - Brooklyn, NY

My friend want to adjust his status through marriage to a US Citizen, but about 10 years ago in GA, 3 police officers arrested him when he allowed them to use his bathroom because they found Lipitor, but he my friend couldn't produce a prescription. He didn't know Georgia or anybody to call, so he pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct. Will he have a problem when answering the question about being arrested, and does he have to provide any evidence by going to Georgia and getting documentation about the arrest?
