So, we have a conviction, and a sentance. I suspect this is where the record of the offense comes from.
but he also said:

The judge told me if I completed my probation without problems, this would be expunged after that year. I called after the year & found out my record still shows the charge but was dismissed.
Which sounds to me like that the judge removed the conviction after the year of probation. If that true then he was essentially "temporarily" convicted, and it should not count against him.

I'm no lawyer, I don't know the technicalities but I do know that certain convictions can be made to just disappear, if it's part of the original deal.
