Green Card, Consular Processing, Petty Theft

Asked about 1 year ago - San Jose, CA

Suppose these are true for a green card process:
2002: I-130 approved and forwarded to NVC, foreign beneficiary had clean background.
2012: Beneficiary convicted of petty theft in country of residence, got 3-yr probation.
Sept-2013: Consular interview scheduled.

Could it be an issue that the probation is not finished yet?
