It depends what kind of "misdemeanor" you were convicted of and if it still remains a "misdemeanor" for federal (spell, immigration) purposes. Usually, as long as the max. possible punishment for the crime (no matter what you actually got) is not more than 364 days or (better, yet) less, you should be fine!
