I've been a Permanent resident for over 6 years. I live in TEXAS.
On 2006, I was cited for an MIP (possesion of alcohol). I was NOT arrested. I went to the court and I agreed to be placed on deferral disposition. Basically I had to do community service, pay a fine, and take an alcohol awarenesss class. After completing the requirementes, my charges were dismissed (i.e I was NEVER convicted). In January 2007 I was cited for "Human Waste" in public property. Again, I was NOT arrested and I was placed on deferral dispostion. That time I only had to pay a fine and commit zero offenses for 3months. The charges were later DISMISSED. Both crimes are classified as Class C Misdemeanors in my home town. In short, I have NO criminal record and I want to apply for Citizenship. way. Can those two incidents prevent me from obtaining citizenship? By the way, I am 21.
