I doubt this would have any effect on your immigration status. Were you convicted?
Carl Shusterman (former INS Trial Attorney, 1976-82) has 40+ years of experience practicing immigration law. He is a Certified Specialist in Immigration Law who has testified before the U.S. Senate Immigration Subcommittee as an expert witness. He was featured in the February 2018 issue of SuperLawyers magazine. His response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
Fare evasion or "turnstile jumping" can be considered a crime involving moral turpitude. See Santos-Gonzalez v. Reno, 93 F.Supp.2d 286, 288 n.3 (E.D.N.Y. 2000), available at https://bit.ly/3yUNeaq. Consult an immigration lawyer for further information.
Do NOT rely on Attorney Murray's response as the information provided on this website is NOT legal advice nor is it a substitute for legal advice which requires a private consultation with a lawyer.
It will depend upon the disposition of the criminal case. You will need to disclose the incident and provide proof of the disposition. The offense is likely a crime involving moral turpitude.
