If I had a misdemeanor charge expunged, must I answer "Yes" to having been convicted on an application for a state issued professional license?

Question Details: I pled guilty to a charge of shoplifting about 10 years ago. I very recently had the charge expunged from my record. The application to sell insurance in the state asks if you were ever found guilty of a misdemeanor, I'm guessing I must answer "Yes" to be honest and legally correct but would prefer not to if attaining the expungement would honestly and legally allow me to change my answer to "No". Obviously, I don't want to be lie on the application or be prevented from attaining a license because I lied. This question may come up again in my future, I would like to know what the law is regarding this.
