What is Deferred Disposition?

In some cases, you may request deferred adjudication from the Court. If you have a good driving record, and you are not currently on deferred disposition, you may make a request to the Court in person. Deferred disposition means you will be placed on probation for a period ranging from 4 to 6 months and pay court costs and an administrative fee. Contact the court for more information at 832-471-2550.

Defendant's under the age of 25 requesting deferred disposition are required to take a mandatory Defensive Driving Course.

A defendant who is younger than 17 years of age must appear in open Court with a parent, guardian, or managing conservator, to enter a plea.

If you successfully comply with the terms of your probation without receiving a moving violation anywhere in the State of Texas, the original charge will be dismissed. Conditions of deferred disposition may include: Defensive Driving, Alcohol or Tobacco Awareness, Community Service or any other program required by law or the Court.

Deferred disposition is not an option if your ticket was for speeding 30 miles per hour or more over the limit, or your ticket resulted from a traffic accident.
