Hello. Still here. What if he has stolen a car and had a gun with him?
Unfortunately that is what is called a crime involving moral turpitude and he has to provide a police clearance from his country. That arrest will show up.
The US consul will not issue him a visa without the matter being resolved and him found not guilty or the charges dropped.
If this was a minor misdemeanor that would be different, but this may even be considered an aggravated felony.

So, he cannot even come under a student visa?

What if he has already been arrested and been in jail for a few months and is waiting for another trial?

He would not be issued any visa to come to the US until he resolves this matter either through a not guilty verdict or the charges are dropped.
The US will not take any chance with him until he clears his name.
