A year ago, I was caught shoplifting and was arrested on a burglary charge. My lawyer later managed to get the burglary reduced to petty theft. In court, the petty theft and burglary charges dismissed. He pled me no contest to Trepassing (CA penal code 602(k)).
I have since left the USA back to my country for good. I would like to apply for a tourist (B1) visa to visit my friends back in the USA. Will this record make me ineligible to apply for the visa?
