If you are admitted to practice before the USPTO, and disclose to them fully all of your arrests, tickets, etc., you will not have problems with your subsequent state bar application.  However, state bars will inquire about applications for other licenses and will typically request, with your consent, a copy of that application from the respective authority.  They then compare the application content to see whether there are any discrepancies and if there are, they will cite you for lack of candor - an often fatal blow to licensure.  Absolute candor is absolutely necessary.  Remember it is "seeming to be of good character on paper," rather than actually being of good character that matters.
