Deferred disposition is a process in which the judge requires the defendant to adhere to certain terms. If a defendant successfully complies with the terms, the case will be dismissed. If the defendant does not comply with the terms of probation, a fine may be assessed and a conviction entered on their driving record.

Requirements

You will be required to pay a special expense fee at the time of the request and comply with the terms of the order of deferred disposition issued by the court. If at the end of your term, you are found to have complied with the order, the case will be dismissed. However, if you are found to have violated any of the terms of the probation, a judgment of conviction will be entered against you, and you may be accessed a higher fine.

Persons under the age of 25 who commit a moving violation must take a driving safety course as a condition of the deferred disposition.
