akshar88 replied to mitsu3000gt's topic in H1B : Visa Stamp@mitsu3000gt Hi Does DUI count as an act of misdemeanor or an infraction? Also, since you were "proven guilty", do you count for being convicted for the misdemeanor act or infraction? I was given a Noise Citation in November 2011 and had those charges dismissed on account of "admitting responsibility" for an added civil infraction (in my city the exact statute for civil infraction says that if the cause of noise cannot be identified, the host will be fined). I paid the fine for the civil infraction and the case was closed. Any inputs please?
