Deferred Disposition

You may be eligible for deferred disposition. Requests for deferred must be made in person at the Court window or in writing on or before the due date on your citation.

Eligibility
You are not eligible if:
  • You have a commercial driver's license
  • You were charged with a violation in a construction zone with workers present
  • You were charged with passing a school bus
  • You were charged with speeding 25 or more miles per hour over the posted limit
  • You were charged with speeding 95 or more miles per hour
Requirements
You must provide the Court the following when deferred is requested:
  • Written plea of no contest or guilty to the charge
  • Pay special expense fee (contact the Court for specific information on fees)
Approval
Upon approval of deferred, your case will be placed on a probationary period for 90 days. If you are under the age of 25, you are required by law to complete a defensive driving course and provide the completion certificate to the Court as a condition of your deferral. You must not receive any further violations during the deferral period.

Failure to Meet Requirements
If you successfully comply with the deferred order, your case will be dismissed. Failure to comply with any part of the deferred order will result in a show cause hearing before the Judge. Failure to appear for the show cause hearing will result in a fine and conviction on your driving record.
