Legal Question in Immigration Law in Ohio

I'm on F-1 visa, only have one class left to graduate, I got charged with a drug possession, I went into the diversion program, two weeks after I started the program, I had to go back home to visit, my program officer gave me permission to go visit for two weeks, my question is, will I be denied entry because of the charge?

Additional information

it's a minor misdemeanor, I've had a DUI case before that was dismissed.

I'm using the same visa and I-20 I had used before

Were you granted advance parole to travel? What was the result of the diversion program? Do you have a chance to have the drug possession charge dismissed? If you were granted permission to leave and you successfully completed diversion, you should be granted re-entry.
