Considering this thread is dated Nov., 2009 - I think the original poster has already been denied US entrance and has moved on.

I really wouldn't chance it. I just got sent back home on a plane, they do now hold some information on UK Criminal Records even from 10/ 20 years ago. I was so looking forward to a trip to New York with my girlfriend and my first trip. As soon as we got off a Newark Aiport after waiting in line, the customs & border agency took my prints. Things were ok but then asked me why I ticked no on my ESTA. I explained it was 20 years ago or so, anyway took me in a lift waited, got questioned in a small room, took my passport put it in a plastic envelope. They sent me back for the following flight back to London, lucky the airline waived the flight fee

What was your offence? and what questions did they ask you at immigration?
