State/Country relating to question: United Kingdom
Hello, welcome to JustAnswer, my name isXXXXX you for this opportunity to answer your questions.
This would be considered a crime involving moral turpitude and you would be inadmissible to the US even on the transit visa.
However, you can ask the consul after they deny the visa for a waiver based on 212d3.

I am happy to answer follow-up questions for you at no additional cost.
If you want to request me in the future start your question "FOR JUDITH" and I will answer quickly.
how can it be moral turpitude when it is not on the moral turpitude list provided by the Embassy?
Did you beat the person?
That is different from a plain battery.
The physical contact could likely take it further.
You will have to applky and find out that is the only sure.
the person hit myself,i then restrainsd him until the police came,he stated that i used force and had a red mark on he,s neck,the police offered me a caution i declined,after 2 yrs and plenty of money i had to plead guilty due to the expense of legal advice.Surely a crime which is one above common assault in the uk could lose me my job if i get turned down by the visa people.A fine and no unpaid work to do was handed down by the court, are we really so different in the uk compared to the us?
I cannot do a comparison of UK and US law. I'm sorry.
You would have to ask a UK Immigration attorney how UK would view that if an American had the same charge here in US for your analysis.
I understand the gravity of this for you. However, the consul will not re-try this case and will only look at the disposition.
They will not give you an opportunity to explain.
