If I was charged with a felony or a specified misdemeanor but I was not convicted, do I need to answer "yes" to any questions?

If you pleaded not guilty and were found not guilty or were not convicted, you do not need to answer "yes" to any question. However, if you pleaded guilty to or nolo contendere ("no contest") to, or were found guilty of a felony, you must answer "yes" to Question A, Disciplinary Information-Criminal Disclosures, even if it did not result in a conviction. If you pleaded guilty or were found guilty of a specified misdemeanor, you must answer "yes" to Question B, Disciplinary Information-Criminal Disclosures, even if it did not result in a conviction. If you pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor, however, you do not have to disclose it if you were not convicted or found guilty.
