I am a F-1 visa student. I am in the US now. I forgot my student ID with free transportation pass on it and got caught. I was charged and the case is closed. They don't have any of my ID number nor my scanned fingerprint. I plan to leave the US in July and come back in Aug. I am wondering if this infraction will affect my visa? And if I might be rejected to enter in the airport? I know I may clear my record according to the court website. But is it necessary?Thank you!!
Although I tend to follow the theory that it doesn't hurt to say yes ... because telling the 'whole' truth is always the best policy ... I will defer to Ms. Gasson's answer.
By the way, records can not be 'cleared' from an immigration perspective.
