The term ‘conviction’ means, with respect to an alien, a formal
judgment of guilt of the alien entered by a court or, if adjudication of guilt
has been withheld, where:
(i) a judge or a jury has found the alien guilty or the alien has entered a plea
of guilty or nolo contendere or has admitted sufficient facts to warrant a finding of guilt,
(ii) the judge has ordered some form of punishment, penalty, or restraint on
the alien’s liberty to be imposed
