Deferred disposition is a process in which the judge requires the defendant to adhere to certain terms. If a defendant successfully completes those terms, the case will be dismissed. Terms may include, but are not limited to, the following:
Attending a defensive driving class
Completing a specified number of community service hours
Refraining from committing certain violations during a specified time period
If the defendant does not complete the terms of deferred disposition or attend required educational classes, additional fines will be imposed and a conviction will be entered on their driving record.
Offenses not qualifying for deferred disposition include:
●Any serious traffic offense
●Traffic offenses committed by a person who holds a commercial driver’s license
●Traffic offenses committed in a construction zone with workers present
IMPORTANT NOTE TO COMMERCIAL DRIVERS LICENSE HOLDERS:
By State Statute, CDL holders WILL NOT qualify for this option, even before the Judge.
You must come in person on your court date to request Deferred Disposition.
