Generally you need to compare the offense charged to the offense you plead guilty to or the offense you were convicted of.In your case there may be a typographical mistake. Check with the court to see the difference between the charge and the conviction offenses.

You were charges with driving while suspended 55-1 and you plead to the violation of 511-a1 Facilitating Unlicensed Driver, the lowest possible plea under that statute. It is a violation, not a crime so you do not have a criminal record. Had you retained an attorney you might have gotten a 509-1 plea to Driving Without a License which is better, but your plea was a decent option and you saved $500 or more in legal fees.
