Generally, a DUI will not implicate one's good moral character, but "special circumstances" may alter the analysis, especially if you are incarcerated during the statutory period. I recommend that you hire an immigration attorney to work with your criminal defense attorney in arriving at the least damaging plea agreement.
I agree. DUI on and of itself is not sufficient to disqualify you for naturalization. At the same time, it might if it comes with a baggage. Please take you case for a very specific review with a good immigration attorney in California. At the very least, you owe it to yourself.

I did notice your earlier post and it seems you were directed to consult with an immigration attorney in your area. This is common for most legal issues but especially with immigration matters. If you don't get what you are looking for in this post you can always try to find an immigration attorney in your area here on AVVO by selecting "Find a Lawyer" at the top of the page. Good luck.
I would expect problems with showing good moral character, but that depends on the local office.
