Would I be denied a Chinese, Japanese, or Taiwan work (or travel) visa (or naturalization), because of my US criminal record?

Asked about 1 year ago - Painesville, OH

Starting about 7 years ago, and ending 8 months later, I got into legal trouble several times (all while attending a community college).

1. The first was a disorderly conduct (with an unknown tacked on criminal trespass), for refusing to comply with orders of a police officer after being loud in a bar's lot.
2. Two months after the first incident, I found myself without a residence. I ended up with a dui after getting into an argument with the bartender I had given my keys to earlier, who told me to leave.
3. Finally, I made another alcohol related mistake of 'walking' to a store to purchase alcohol after already drinking. On the way back to my brothers apartment, a police officer stopped me about a block and a half away and charged me with disorderly conduct and having an open container.
