How would I answer this employment question?

Asked about 1 year ago - San Antonio, TX

I was arrested for "Violating a Protection Order." Level of degree was a Felony. I was given deferred adjudication probation, which I completed, however it was reduced to a Misdemeanor deferred adjudication.

Have you ever been convicted of a felony or subjected to deferred adjudication on a felony charge? Yes or No.

Can anyone help
