    Deferred Judgments

    The following cases of driving while ability impaired with a blood-alcohol content between 0.05 percent and 0.08 percent or by prescription or illegal drugs were granted deferred judgments and sentences in December 2012. A deferred judgment is not a conviction. It is a sentence typically put off (deferred) for a specific period of time, typically a year. If the defendant complies with each of the conditions of the deferred sentence within the allotted time period, the defendant’s record is cleared of this charge. Orders typically require no violations of the law during the period of the order, except for traffic infractions, attend a victim-impact panel and alcohol education class. Dollar amounts not otherwise specified are court costs defendants were ordered to pay.
