Deferred Disposition

Deferred Disposition (probation) is a suspended sentence and an option to have your violation dismissed.   Upon your plea of of guilty or no contest , the Judge will defer any finding of guilt, assess the applicable fees and order you to comply with certain conditions.  If you successfully comply with the terms and conditions, your case will be dismissed without a conviction. 

Defendants who are younger than 25 years of age must also complete a driving safety course as condition of probation.

You may request deferred disposition in person, online, or by mail. You may also request permission for Deferred Disposition from the Judge in court on your court date.
