What is a Deferred Entry of Judgement (DEJ)?

For certain types of drug offenses, if you are a first time offender, you can avoid a conviction with a deferred entry of judgment (DEJ). For adults this options is available only for certain drug offenses. In this case the defendant pleads guilty but the court does not enter the judgment so the conviction is never finalized. After a specific period of time, if all sentencing guidelines have been met and no new offenses have been committed, the case will be dismissed.

Notwithstanding a dismissal for successful completion of DEJ there are still records, both physical and electronic, of the court proceedings or otherwise related to the case.  You may petition the court for an order for the records of the arresting agency and the court to be sealed.​

Our experienced attorney is ready to discuss your legal problems, and to pursue the solutions.
