just tell the truth....because if you lie and the CO/USCIS finds out, you will be done....for a long long time. Stop trying to find loopholes and just give the facts of your case to those who are requesting it.

When I had applicants lie about arrests (often shoplifting while in the US as a student) and my electronic records showed otherwise, their credibility took a huge nosedive....some tried to back pedal with the 'gee, I forgot..." or 'I never went to court'...but the question on the application merely asked, 'have you EVER been arrested?'....if they were unwilling to answer that simple question truthfully, why should I believe anything else they tell me? Remember, credibility is the best asset a visa applicant has....don't ruin it at the outset.
