I have been charged with dui of alcohol, inattentive driving, no insurance and expired drivers license. These are four misdemeanor charges. The case is in court and I have not been convicted yet. Does the probability of deportation depend on me getting convicted? What if I get a diversion? I am an international student on a F1 visa.
Fortunately for you, these are not deportable crimes.

You need to immediately speak with an immigration attorney as well as a criminal defense attorney who handles dui. There are very few who do both. The immigration attorney will be a little harder to find but there are several very good ones in Kansas City. You must speak with a dui attorney to discuss your options. There may be defenses of which you are unaware. Diversion might be an option but do not go without the advice of counsel. If you are still within 14 days of the arrest you may be able to try to prevent a license suspension because of this event.
