    Most acts committed by a juvenile aren't crimes, they are simply delinquent acts.

    You should be able to have your Green Card renewed without difficulty, because you are now an adult.

    Welcome to the USA, and thank you for doing it the legal way!!!!

    You need to discuss all of your questions with an immigration attorney, or one of the groups that assists people with immigration issues.
