Shoplifting case effect on acquiring citizenship

By gettruth in Legal,
Dear TTers,   I sincerely ask for your help.
I already searched for similar posts in this forum but couldn't find.   My situation is following: I was so stupid and got caught in shoplifting an article worth 40€ (It happened in 2013). The police have taken me & collected my details and told me that I will get a letter from the court and I have to follow the court instructions. Few days later I received a letter from court that I can settle the matter by paying 150€ to charity. I've accepted it and paid 150€ in time and submitted the payment proofs to the court. All these things happened in September 2013. My stupidity has caused me a lot of pain and many sleepless nights. That was my first and last act of shoplifting (my stupidity) and I never repeated it again (and will never do it again too).   I'm herewith attaching the papers I got from the court. Please see the underlined sentences (in red color) in the below documents and it says that "Sie gelten als nicht vorbestraft und der Vorfall wird nicht in ein Führungszeugnis aufgenommen." and "Bei Erfüllung der Auflage kann die Tat nicht mehr als Vergehen verfolgt werden."   So My questions here are Am I convicted as a criminal? (Because it says that I am "nicht vorbestraft")
And as well, it says "der Vorfall wird nicht in ein Führungszeugnis aufgenommen. Bei Erfüllung der Auflage kann die Tat nicht mehr alsn Vergehen verfolgt werden." And I have fulfilled it with in time. So would there be a criminal record?   I am now applying for the Citizenship. In the application form for the "Citizenship" there is a column for "Straftaten, Ordnungswirdigkeiten, Straf- und Ermittlungsverfahren - Ja oder Nein" What should I write here "Ja" or "Nein"? Wenn Ja: 1. "Angaben über Datum, erkennendes Gericht, Tatbestand und Strafmaß noch nicht getilgter Vorstrafen". 2. "Angaben über Datum, Behörde, Tatbestand und Buße bei Ordnungswirdigkeiten der letzen drei Jahre". 3. "Angaben über anhängige Strafverfahren". 4. "Angaben über anhängige oder gegen Zahlung einer Geldbuße eingestellte Ermittlungsverfahren".   If I am convicted as criminal and paid the fine,so my case would be falling under 1. or 2. or 3. or 4. (in the above details)?   Please help me to come over this confusion. Looking forward to your help.
