That charge would not prevent renewal, but you have requirements to meet concerning the arrest and conviction. Also, you might be eligie for citizenship rather than renewal. Using an attorney is definitely a smart move.

No, it will not be denied based on the facts you give, but make sure to have an attorney help you with filling the GC renewal.

With these facts you should have an attorney prepare the application. It is also recommended to wait five years after the conviction and payment of fines to apply for citizenship. Be sure to maintain your record clean from now on. More than one CIMT may challenge or terminate your status.
