I’m a truck driver, straight truck. I had an accident in Illinois 2016 with a small sedan, driver had minor injuries, passenger was all good. I got finger printed and given a citation for 123$ With no court appearance required that I paid off. When I look this case up at the Knox court it comes up as a petty offense, will this affect my naturalization since I got finger printed?
This probably won't be a problem.
But, you should meet with an attorney for confirmation.
