Deferred Disposition

Deferred disposition is an option of having the citation dismissed and not having it show up on your driving record. This option consists of the defendant’s request, payment of all fines and court costs plus a special expense fee of $40, completing a probationary period from 0 - 180 days, and completing all requirements set forth in the deferral order. A plea of guilty or nolo contendere (no contest) is required.

Deferred disposition requirements for those under 25:

Defendants under the age of 25 requesting deferred disposition need to be advised that they will be ordered to take a driving safety course as part of your requirements. Also, if they hold a provisional driver’s license, they will be ordered to take an exam by the Department of Public Safety. These are in addition to any other requirements ordered by the Court.

Deferred disposition will not be an option if:

  • You are already on deferred disposition with the City of Anna Municipal Court.
  • Your citation is for an offense committed in a construction zone with workers present.
  • You hold or held a CDL at the time of the citation.
  • Citations for 30 or over mph in a regular zone
