Yep, this...... Same with me. Deferred adjudication. Pay your money and move along.

Re: Ticket dismissal class

For any possibly unaware, deferred adjudication has risks. Another moving violation during your deferred period (usually 3-6 months) then the ticket reverts back to original points and fine. Therefore I'll only do deferred if DDC is not an option. Better to have a guaranteed clean ticket wipe and less money out of pocket. Online DDC is very painless.

Another thing I learned back in my I-go-150-MPH-everywhere-and-constantly-hire-a-lawyer-because-I-get-pulled-over-so-often days: A good ticket lawyer can tie up the second ticket until the deferment goes though.

Re: Ticket dismissal class

Last time I got a ticket, I asked the DA for deferred adjudication and got it. Drove carefully for 90 days.

True, Last online DDC class I took was a beating though. I was a true waste of time. I'd rather not deal with it and take my chances adjudication. I did do the differed once and did get another ticket during the probation period. I wouldn't recommend it if you think you might get pulled over. It was pretty ridiculous and the cop was sneaky. I was super careful for the 6 months. This was in the last week. I did speed though. She was just a jerk about it and I was only going a few MPH over. They didn't catch the adjudication though. I didn't say anything and took the DDC to reduce the fine on the second ticket. Neither ticket ended up on my record luckily. Farther proof that they really don't care about you speeding, but want your money. YMMV.....

Re: Ticket dismissal class

I believe Deferred conditions are set by each individual jurisdiction. Some only require that you not receive another award in THEIR baliwick for a given period of time, 90 days, 6 mos or whatever. Awards received elsewhere may be of no concern. I believe the presiding jurisdiction are the only one reporting revocations. Either way conditions should be clearly defined in written correspondence. This is just the way I understand it, given my limited involvement in such matters. YMMV

Re: Ticket dismissal class

You can get deferred as often as the court will give it, but on DDC like once a year. If you take DDC it will show up on your record is some sort of Data base where deferred doesn't. Also, I believe that if you take DDC and then get another ticket within the one year they may not give you deferred. Take Deferred first, then as a backup take DDC if you get caught again. Again, its all about the $$$$. I heard that most of the money goes to the state, where if you get deferred most of the $$$$ goes to the court. That's why they don't mind giving deferred.

I concur. I once had two tickets close together and took one driving class to dismiss both of them. Sent the ticket copy to one and the insurance discount copy to the other and all was well. This was years ago.
