What does deferred judgment mean and what goes on your criminal record after your probation is over?

I was convicted for shoplifting I plead guilty because they offered me a plea bargain. I am currently on unsupervised probation and I had to take a theft seminar that I’ve already completed. This is my first offense and I am 19 years old.
