Deferred sentencing probation is commonly referred to as “deferred”.  This is a special type of probation because the judge never finds you guilty of the offense. You must still plead guilty, but the judge defers (or delays) finding you guilty.  Think of it as a “time out” to the court proceedings.

You will then be placed on probation or community supervision for a period of time.  During this period you may be assigned community service, ordered to attend special classes, and even assessed a fine.  Conditions of your probation will depend upon the offense charged.  If you successfully complete your probation, the case will be dismissed.
