Hello,my name is Judith. Thank you for this opportunity to answer your questions.
I see from your other question that you have had an arrest for shoplifting.
That will affect your good moral character.
You should wait 5 years to apply for your naturalization because such an arrest even if not convicted will make you be determined to have bad moral character.
There is no penalty if you apply and are denied but you loose a very big filing fee.

No it should not do that if the punishment is less the 6 months and the max is less than a yes.
