I am applying for a teaching position in Florida. One series

Resolved Question:

I am applying for a teaching position in Florida. One series of questions asks if I have ever been:

convicted of; found guilty of, pled guilty to a criminal offense.

I have received a DUI and pled no contest; I paid fines. No one hurt no harm done.
Is this considered a criminal offense, and if so, do I check "yes" next to being found guilty?
do I check "yes" next to being convicted?? Or do I check "yes" to having pled "nolo contendere?" to a criminal offense. Or do I just check NO next to all of these???
