Yea, those will probably give you trouble. Fitness committees are generally tough on any crime that will question your honesty or trustworthiness. The link in the post above will get you to the LSD post that details state-by-state.
The things that will be considered will be the circumstances surrounding your crimes, your age at the time, the time that has passed, your candor regarding the events, the seriousness of the crime, the reliability of the information that they can find, evidence of rehabilitation, and the great things that you have contributed to the community since the crime.
Things that will kill you will be trying to offer excuses, minimize the seriousness, or hide details of the crimes.
IMO, if the crimes were recent, you should wait at least 3 years to apply to law school. Good luck.
