I have gotten a violation for not having a bus fare on the bus and I pled entry of no contest. Instead of just paying for the fine, there was another option of doing 8 hrs of community service for the dismissal of my case. I did the community service and my case is now dismissed.
I'm currently filing for citizenship and the form asks If I have ever been charged with committing any crime or offense.
You should admit this on your application. However, it will affect your eligibility for naturalization.
