Since it has been several years since you filed the first application and with the intervening arrest and conviction your husband will need to file a new adjustment of status application. You should seek the advice of competent immigration counsel to determine whether the misdemeanor will raise inadmissibility grounds. You should also take all of the paperwork from when you first filed. This will be important for the attorney to determine whether the I-130 visa petition that you should have filed the first time was ever adjudicated. Good luck to you.
Meet with an attorney and take all immigration and criminal paperwork that you have.
