Almost four years ago I was charged with an OVI in Ohio and the OVI was a marijuana-related one. I also had some marijuana with me, but the amount was so tiny (less than a gram) that that charge was dismissed.
I am a green card holder and have been in the U.S. for 5 years and now technically eligible to apply for a citizenship, but after reading all the laws and cases regarding my situation, I am not even sure I won't be deported once/when I apply for citizenship. Please advise if there are any ways to potentially receive a rehabilitation or/and prove that the OVI was just a single mistake right after I turned 21.
2nd question: in case I choose not to apply for citizenship and stay with my green card, what will happen in 2009 when it's time for me to renew the green card?
