A California infraction is not a conviction under the standard federal regulations so you have nothing to worry about.
If you have no other convictions or residency issues, this infraction won't affect your immigration status.
You will be able to benefit from the "petty offense" exception to the Crime of Moral Turpitude conviction. So you should be OK.
