Roofio im getting my information from experience, I've been through this process and worked closely with an immigration lawyer.

The embassy states any arrest regardless of what it is you need to do an interview.

If Kate takes your advice of answering No, gets to the boarder and is pulled up for not declaring they've been to prison for fraud, do you know how serious that could be?!

Listen this is honestly how it will work for you Kate.

You can travel to the US and declare No, you most likely will get in but if they pull you up and you haven't declared your prison time, there could be trouble

Go to the embassy do the interview, if they say no do it again in 6 months

I repeat any arrest regardless of how small it is needs to be declared. You may still be eligible for a visa after declaring but anything whether it's spent or unspent needs to be declared
