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 contendre (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 you will be ordered to take a driving safety course as part of your requirements. Also, if you hold a provisional driver’s license you 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 City of Anna Municipal Court.

- You hold or held a CDL at the time of the citation.
- Citations for 30 or over mph in a regular zone
- Citations for 20 or over mph in a school zone.
- Please be advised that there may be other factors as to why you may be denied deferred disposition. Each citation is looked at carefully by the Court and the ultimate decision will be made by the Judge.

- Copy of a driver's license
- Copy of insurance
