That would depend on whether or not you were convicted of a felony.

The charge was discharging a firearm in public -- at that time, was this a felony charge or was it a misdemeanor charge? Was the maximum possible penalty more or less than one year? (Not what you were actually sentenced to -- what was the worst the judge COULD have whacked you with?)

And, as Check Six asked above, were you convicted? He seems to think that probation might be indicative of a withheld adjudication. I'm inclined to think that probation can only be imposed following a conviction. However, not only am I also not an attorney, I'm also not a resident of Florida so I'm not up to speed in procedures in FL criminal court.
