There is a difference between having a conviction and being a convicted criminal. In your case, you have a conviction, which many times is the result of a crime. The only thing about the conviction is that it does not change who you are, who you were, or what you have and have not done. There are many people who have a conviction for a crime, but never did it. They are still the same person they were without a conviction and have never done that crime.
What matters most is that what you have set out to do you have achieved, what you have done, not what you have left undone.
