Visa at consulate after cimt conviction for petty theft

Asked 2 months ago - San Francisco, CA

Hello , I was convicted for 1 petty theft crime , with no jail . I had no contest plea in court .
It falls under petty offence exception but what are chances to get visa in this situation , Can consulate deny based on these charges or using 214(b) or issue 221(g) ?
Is there any chance of successful stamping for getting non immigrant work visa ?
