in 2009. Can I apply for citizenship now? Is disorderly conduct a CIMT? If I apply will I be deported?
to properly answer your question i would need to review the criminal convcition. Have you completed any probation and paid any fines? Most likely if these are done you shoudl be fine to apply for citizenship.

I agree with my colleague. You should collect all of the information related to the criminal adjudication and sentence completion and consult with an experienced immigration attorney who can provide you with a legal opinion as to what consequences, if any, this event has on your ability to naturalizae.
