Asked 11 months ago - Knoxville, TNFlag
I was brought to the U.S. at 3 months old. I am now 22 with 2 children, I graduated highschool in '07. I got a ticket for shoplifting an eyeliner at a k-mart when I was 19. I plead guilty with an explanation. I was never arrested, I paid the fine of one hundred dollars. This is the only incident on my record? Would this jeopardize me from being included in the new deferred action policy? Should I get a lawyer to file?
