I am getting ready to file for my citizenship. In 2004 I was ticketed in Texas for selling tobacco to a minor (Class C misdemeanor) at a gas station. Fine was paid and case closed. Was NOT arrested, fingerprinted or detained. In 2004 I was not working legally at the gas station. How would this play out for my citizenship? How do I answer my questions for good moral section?
Depends on whether you disclosed it when you applied for permanent residence.
