Let me see if I can help and please rate positive.

Firstly, it is important to tell the truth - as such it will be upto the case worker to use his/ her discretion to decide weather this is a general grounds for refusal or not. Such a conviction is not necessarily something which would prevent you from succeeding in your application. It is a minor offence. Happy to discuss but please rate positive. Thanks
