Probation/ Deferred

Eligibility

You may be eligible to have your violation dismissed with probation. The Judge in his sole discretion, may defer disposition on most cases.  Generally, probation period is for 90 days to 180 days.  Additional conditions may apply depending on the type of the violation received.  If you successfully complete the required conditions, the case is dismissed and no final conviction will be reported. 

You are eligible for Deferred Disposition if:

  • You do not have a CDL license.
  • You are not charged with a construction zone violation.
  • You are not charged with speeding in excess of 25 mph over the posted limit.
  • You have not participated in a deferred program in this court or another court during the past 12 months. 
  • If you are under the age of 25, you must appear at the Court window to request probation.  State law requires you to complete a Driver Safety Course (only course - no driving record) and return the certificate of completion to the court within the deferral period.
