Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
When was the conviction and what sentence did you get?Alex
Technically you have been sentenced to prison, even if you did not go, so dont be under any illusion, you have a prison sentence.
The question you are asked is: Have you ever been arrested or convicted for an oence or crime that resulted in serious damage to property, or serious harm to another person or government authority; or ever violated any law related to possessing, using, or distributing illegal drugs?
The answer is no. However I would not even declare to the US Officials when you land about this, there is no information sharing between the UK and USA when it comes to convictions, so the US wont know unless YOU tell them.
But you can tick no because of the question anyway.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
Ok - I have taken time and looked at this. There is no conviction sharing between the UK and USA, so unless you tell them they wont know.
Further I have looked at moral turpitude and this does not come into the description in the USA.
But to be clear you have been sentenced to custody, even if it has been suspended.
If I could invite you to rate my answer before you go today please, otherwise the site does not credit me for the time spent with you today. Thanks and good luck. Alex
