Per the advice of my attorney, I pled No Contest to my 1st DUI and was given probation and a fine.
Since the arrest, I have filled out numerous job applications and most of them ask if you have been CONVICTED of any misdemeanor crime. So, due to the wording of the application, must I divulge my past?
The real question is, if I pled No Contest to a crime and was given probation/fine, does this mean in fact I was convicted of the crime, just merely without an admission of guilt? How is pleading Guilty different than pleading No Contest?
