Is pleading guilty going to affect my Citizenship Application?

I applied Canadian citizenship in February 2012 and was sent a book to study for my citizenship test. In July 2012, I was charge with assault. The crown's position is, if I plead guilty, I will get a conditional discharge with 12 months probation. This is my first offence and I know I have a good case but have no money to hire a Lawyer and legal aid is not giving me a lawyer because the crown is not seeking jail term. The only option is to either plead guilty or defend myself. My question is; If I plead guilty and get the conditional discharge, is that going to affect my Citizenship Application?
