Deferred Adjudication or Deferred Disposition is a type of probation. Defendant is placed on a probation for a certain period of time, typically 90 to 180 days. If the probation is successfully completed, the case is “dismissed”- without a conviction. If conditions are not met, the defendant will be convicted and have to pay the fine.

No, you will not be arrested. Should you not respond, you will be sent a pre-warrant letter in the mail. At this point you may still inform the Court as to what you would prefer to do regarding your citation.
If you fail to respond to the pre-warrant, a warrant will be issued. Once you receive a warrant, a hold will be placed on your driver’s license and you will not be able to renew it. An additional hold will be placed on your vehicle registration; you will not be able to renew or register your vehicle. Additional court fees will apply.
Please read your plea form. See additional eligibility requirements.
