I was looking at the naturalization form as I'll be able to apply in a few months and got to Part D of Section 10, Good Moral Character. I was given a citation a month ago for using a fake ID to try and get in to a bar. It was probably the dumbest choice I've ever made, but I have to live with it. The officer told me that he could have charged me with a criminal offense but decided to give me a civil citation instead. From my understanding this is similar to a traffic ticket. I have to go to court and will probably pay a fine (no more than $500) and/or get community service.
How do I answer questions 17 and 18? I don't think this is really something you get "convicted" for. And if I only get a fine, how do I answer question 19?
God I wish I could turn back time and tell myself not to be an idiot.
