@iken12 you might want to reach out to an immigration attorney and talk about your case before making any decisions. With that being said, murder and aggravated felonies will permanently bar you from U.S. Citizenship. Other crimes will delay the process. One of the requirements for citizenship is “good moral character”. So some crimes prevent you from establishing good moral character. You will need to make sure the crime does not put your good moral character into question. Let us at SimpleCitizen know if you’d like to schedule an attorney consultation. Thanks!
