i just now have a crimminal case for theft under 50. I have heard that it is a class C misdemeanor. I am trying to hire a lawyer to get this dismissed but I am wondering what is the best way to close this case assuming that I am not a citizen.
In fact, If I plea no guilty my trial won't start till after April 2013.... However , my company is planning on filing for my H1B this April 2013. This means on my criminal record the case will still be "open" with no disposition. My question is: would the fact that my case will still be open affect my H1B approval? whats is the best way to deal with this case in order for it not to impact my H1B approval in april 2013
