I have been arrested for Domestic Violence more than 5.5 years ago. The case was dismissed. I got denied 2 times and will be on interview for a 3rd time in 1 month.
I agree with my colleagues, and would only add that often denials of citizenship aren't solely based on the criminal act or charge, but on the applicant's failure to be forthcoming about the circumstances of that arrest.
I would recommend that you contact an immigration attorney near you, who can assist you in preparing not just your application, but also for your interview.
