I have applied for the citizenship last week and I am a bit worried as I have a criminal record listed against me.
I was found guilty of shop steal but there was no conviction or fine.
This was my first and last offence in Australia. I never had any serious traffic offence either and always been a good resident for the last five years.

I am just worried about the outcome of my application. Will this offence result into decline of my application or are there any chances that I might get the citizenship?
I have declared the offence in my application. Should I attached the PCC which I applied for after the offence, which has the offence mentioned in it? Or just mentioning the offence in application is fine?

Any sort of suggestion would be highly appreciated.
