You should never lie on an application with the government because you will need to take fingerprints before your naturalization interview. Your prints go back to the FBI's National Crime Information Center (NCIC) and if you have ever been arrested, charged, or convicted of a crime, the government WILL have a record.
If the government finds that you lied on your application, you could face deportation. If you have any question, please do not hesitate to call our office for a consultation. It is much too importation for you to take a risk.
