You need to obtain a copy of his criminal record and have an immigration attorney review it to see if it gives rise to any grounds of inadmissibility and if there is a waiver available.

To get a full, specific answer for your question you would really need to speak to an attorney who you can describe the entire situation to, but as a general matter if you have an approved immigrant visa number you can file for adjustment of status.
