I generally agree though I think it’s a little bit of a bait and switch to say a deferral is not a record of conviction, except when it is...Ameer wrote: ↑Wed Jul 24, 2019 5:31 pm
When you ask for deferred adjudication, you're admitting guilt. I don't have a problem with that being treated as a conviction for certain crimes like breaking into people's homes. After all, it's presumed reasonable to shoot somebody breaking into your home.
If they want it off their record, they can make the case for a pardon, expunction or nondisclosure.
Anyway for the OP I e heard it’s not that hard to get a non-disclosure order especially if you have a clean record other than the deferral. Also understand that some jurisdictions are now giving deferrals together with a non-disclosure after successful completion.
