Deferred Adjudication

Deferred adjudication is a type of plea deal accessible in different jurisdictions, where a defendant pleads guilty or No Contest to criminal charges in exchange for meeting certain requirements laid out by the court within an allotted period of time also ordered by the court. Upon completion of the necessities, which may comprise probation, treatment, community service, several types of community supervision, or some other diversion program, the defendant may avoid a formal conviction on their record or have their case dismissed.
