My impression was always that NY was one of the 'easiest' C&F jurisdictions insofar as no one really gets dinged for a lone DUI, a plagiarism incident in college, having been fired from a job, etc. They might make you write some follow up responses or even ask you about it briefly in your C&F interview (but in NY everyone does a C&F 'interview' the day of or a day or two before admission).
I don't know anything about DC in particular--none of my classmates who waived in down there had any problems I ever heard about. But in general my impression for C&F was always that NY was among the 'easiest' states or perhaps the more diplomatic phrasing would be that NY was among the 'most reasonable' C&F states in that they obviously take the seriously the responsibility of protecting the public and integrity of the profession, but are not likely to rake applicants over the coals for relatively minor blemishes.
To;dr: while I have no definitive answer to offer, I would be somewhat surprised to learn that DC was regarded as markedly 'less strict' than NY for C&F
