So my fiance from the UK was granted a VWP and has traveled twice to the US. After recently asking questions in regards to a k-1 visa that we're in the process of, it came to my attention that we may have answered one of the questions no, when it should have been yes. He had a caution many years back but couldn't remember what the exact charge was or when. While we were deciding to do the VWP, he applied for a job that required a background check. It came back "No Record." So we were excited and thought we were in the clear. Comes to find out, that is not the case since they don't care if you were convicted or not. How much trouble could he be in for this?
The caution was for Handling Stolen goods (receiving). He had no knowledge of this and that is why he was only cautioned since he was in "possession of it". The question asked if he was ever arrested or convicted of any crime that resulted in serious damage to property. I had no idea that technically fell into that category.
