"Deferred Disposition" means that you plead guilty or no contest to the charge, but instead of finding you guilty at that time, the Court, in its discretion, places you on probation for a period of time not to exceed 180 days.
At the time you are placed on deferred disposition, you will be required to pay the fine and court costs as ordered by the Court. The Court may also order additional conditions of deferred disposition.
At the end of the deferred disposition period, providing you have complied with the Court's order, your case will be dismissed and you will not have a conviction for that charge. However, if you violate the conditions of your deferred disposition, this may result in conviction, and for minors with tobacco or alcohol charges, it may result in the suspension of your driver's license.
If you've received a citation, you can check your eligibility for deferred disposition.
