Currently I'm contemplating becoming a citizen. But one thing worries me: a long time ago (definitely before 2004 when I got my GC), I made a stupid mistake: I was caught shoplifting a $11 item at Home Depot. Police came and I got fingerprinted. Later I got a citation and went to the court house. A magistrate dismissed the case with a misdemeanor judgement. Now I didn't want to lie in N-400 but I totally forgot when the incident happened and I couldn't find any paper work either. I went to the court, Home Depot and local police station but nobody could find any record whatsoever. The court clerk told me what I went through at the time with the magistrate was a show cause hearing and the case had never gone any further so no record. Could somebody please advise?
