RE[1]: Waiver received


So how long do I have to wait to submit a waiver after the offence was commited? US immigration rules state 15 yrs while others say to wait 5 yrs. I received an absolute discharge for an intimidation charge which came about after a fight with my neighbor. She called the cops and pressed bogus charges on me. My lawyer told me to plead guilty as this was the most favorable outcome. This would leave me with no permanent record and no punishment. Although the neighbor intimidated me. I decided to move on from this and avoid taking it to trial. I do not see this offence anywhere in the US federal penal legislation. I can't tell wether it is a CIMT or not. Regardless, I was charged summarily which according to US immigration laws I qualify under the petty exception. I have many questions and hope you can be of assistance.
