Hello, I am a green card holder and was charged with petty theft about 2 months ago in Illinois (1st time ever, misdemeanor up to 364 days in jail). On my court date, I didn't have to plea to anything and the judge dismissed the case on the spot for lack of evidence/witnesses.
My question is: since I still have an arrest record which is a CIMT but no conviction at all, do I still have a chance of being deported? I am traveling abroad in a few weeks and I'm scared to death of re-entering the country. Also, what kind of documents should I bring to prove that I'm not a convicted criminal?
Please help, I am really scared.
