I was brought to the U.S. at 3 months old. I am now 22 with 2 children, I graduated highschool in '07. I got a ticket for shoplifting an eyeliner at a k-mart when I was 19. I plead guilty with an explanation. I was never arrested, I paid the fine of one hundred dollars. This is the only incident on my record? Would this jeopardize me from being included in the new deferred action policy? Should I get a lawyer to file?More info on ticket: obviously I made a mistake and I'm not innocent. I did take a receipt with proof I paid for everything else. I think the judge lowered my fine because of this. Do my u.s. citizen children give me any equity in fighting this? Can I try to get this expunged? never had contact with law enforcement except this one time.
