The first thing I would do is stop admitting to the world that you stole something. The second thing is to find a good lawyer in your area and ask him/her these questions.

That question would be for somone like Rebecca Saldana. You need to find an immigration lawyer. There are many reasons other than DWI convictions that go into acquiring cititzenship. Not only would I contact a good immigration lawyer, I would stop drinking and driving if I wanted to stay out of jail and become a citizen of the United States.

We can do a lot of things and filing a lawsuit is one of them. The questions might be- Can you find a lawyer who would accept the case? and What are the chances of winning that type of suit? I don't want to answer those questions. That would be for your lawyer to answer.
What is the question? If I were in your shoes, I might consider hiring a "good" lawyer because having a law license doesn't mean anything really. If I were drinking, drugging, killing people, (or hanging out with those that do), I would stop.
I'm with John Gio. If I'm in your situation, I'm not going to sit back and wait because I would have some responsibility. I would call, write, email, or text my lawyer and make an effort to find out.
Do not plead guilty to a DUI/DWI. Get the right lawyer for you and your case. Ask friends and people that work around the courthouse for references. Do not pick from the yellow pages or solicitation letters you may get in the mail.
