Nothing. If you plead you pay the fine or whatever but green card status is not effected despite those on here saying you will be deported. Unless of course you are found guilty and/or plead guilty and the judgment could be more than one year in jail (this doesn't mean that you have to receive one year, only the possibility that you may receive that much) then it is an aggravated felony which means, or should mean, an instant ticket home. But frankly, this administration is not following the CIMT provision so I wouldn't worry about I. I can tell you about one green card who currently has convictions for theft an has retained their green card with no repercussions.
