Deferred judgment is a procedure that allows individuals to avoid creating a criminal record for themselves. If you are facing criminal charges and you fear that the facts of your case are not likely to lead to a favorable outcome or, perhaps, you simply seek to avoid the uncertainty of trial, deferred judgment offers certainty and a great degree of control over the outcome of your case.
To take advantage of the deferred judgment procedure, a plea of guilty must first be submitted. That plea is held while a term of probation is completed. Successful completion of that term of probation will result in the dismissal of the case. The dismissal of the case prevents the accrual of a criminal record that could:
- Damage future job prospects
- Prevent the accomplishment of educational goals
- Interfere with the ability to secure an apartment
- Have a detrimental effect on your ability to maintain any professional licenses
