Justice of the Peace #2 - Deferred Disposition
Information on Deferred Disposition
On most violations, you may request Deferred Disposition. If Deferred Disposition is granted you will be assessed court costs, plus a Special Expense fee. Your Deferred Disposition begins when your order is signed and returned to the Court.
In order for your violation to be dismissed by Deferred Disposition, you must not be convicted of any additional moving violations during your deferred period. If no violations appear on your driving record during your deferred period, your violation will be dismissed. If a moving violation appears on your driving record during your deferred period, you will be sent a Show Cause letter to appear before the Judge. The Judge may then revoke your Deferred Disposition.
Not all violations are eligible for this option.
