Are you there

Yes I am here. You opted me out twice while I was preparing your answer and I cannot respond to you once you opt me out and I have to request to be opted back in which takes very long. I am back now :)

Technically you should report this when you go to your interview because the N-400 asks about any crimes you were not arrested for also. During the interview they will ask you if your answers are still correct. It is is up to you to tell them or not. If you tell them, there is a chance that you can be denied because that took place within the last 5 years. It was not terribly serious so the chances are not high that you will be denied because of it. You may want to take letters of recommendation from people that know you (friends, neighbors, employer) to help boost your moral character.

Good luck to you and I hope this answer has helped you.

Please kindly click "Finish by RATING" and choose a rating from the STARS ★★★★★. The question will NOT finish or close after you click and rate me. DON'T WORRY. It will stay OPEN after you rate me and I can continue to answer your follow up questions at no additional charge, if you have any.

The stars are very important. If you don't RATE , I receive zero credit for my time with you. Hopefully you can rate me 3 stars or more. 5 stars rating is the best!

Again, if you have additional follow up questions for me, please ask and I will be happy to clarify. Your satisfaction is my #1 goal.

Any bonus you feel I earned is always very appreciated. For any NEW questions you have in the future that you would like only me to answer, you can begin the new post with the words "FOR JEN."

what happen if I don’t tell them about it

The risk is if they somehow know about it and then can accuse you of lying. It is unlikely that they would know, but it is up to you to tell them or not.

I hope this has helped and that you can kindly issue a positive rating.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
