During your naturalization interview, you can clarify your answer to this question, and provide the information/documents related to your previous arrest, custody, and Immigration Court proceedings. I do not foresee there will be issues with mis-marking this question on the application, especially if you disclose this information during your interview.

At the time of your N-400 interview, I would bring any and all documents that you have related to your case in immigration court, and explain truthfully to the officer that you simply made a mistake or misunderstood the question. I would be up front about it and explain that you have a correction to make to your N-400 application.

    Answered . See thats why its so important to hire competent immigration counsel before you fill out an immigration form. All these forms carry legal consequences with them and are signed under penalty of perjury. You can advise the officer at the interview about the error but there is no guarantee they will not deny the case for lack of good moral character for failing to properly answer this question.
