Deferred Disposition is a form of probation that, when completed successfully, may result in the dismissal of your case. The probation period may be up to 180 days. For the case to be successfully completed you must pay the required fee as ordered and comply with all requirements of the Deferred Disposition order.
Requesting Deferred Disposition may require a court appearance, but in some instances it may be requested through the court clerk. You may be able to request Deferred Disposition without appearing in court if:
- You were charged with a traffic related offense
- You enter a plea of Guilty or No Contest
- You are able to pay the fine, court costs, and a $20 administrative fee at the time of the request.
- You have a valid non-commercial driver's license
- You are not currently on Deferred Disposition with The Colony Municipal Court.
- You have not completed Deferred Disposition for a similar violation in the previous 12 months.
- You were not cited for Speeding more than 25 miles per hour over the posted limit.
- You were not cited for Speeding 95 miles per hour or more.
- You were not involved in an accident at the time of the offense.
- You were not cited for Passing a School Bus, Failure to Obey a School Crossing Guard, or a similar offense.
- You were not cited in a construction zone with workers present.
