Deferred Disposition


Deferred disposition is a way of having your citation dismissed after satisfactory completion of a probationary period during which no additional convictions are received, and after all requirements imposed in the deferred order are satisfied.

Deferred Disposition Process

  • You MUST appear in person to fill out an application for Deferred Disposition
  • If qualified, you will be required to pay any state costs and post a bond equal to the fine for the alleged offense
  • You may be required to take a driving safety course
  • If you held a Commercial Drivers License at the time of the alleged offense or were exceeding the speed limit by more than 24 miles over the limit, you do not qualify for Deferred Disposition

Failure to Comply

  1. If you fail to comply with any of the requirements for a Deferred disposition, your case will be set for a show cause hearing.
  2. If you fail to appear at the hearing, judgment will be entered. You will have 10 days from the hearing date to file an appeal bond.
  3. If an appeal bond is not filed, the bond posted at the time of Deferred disposition will be converted to pay the judgment entered.

You may waive your hearing by signing the waiver on your show cause letter or by writing to the court to waive your show cause hearing:

Municipal Court

3815 Sachse Rd.

Building B

Sachse, TX 75048

The bond will be converted, and a conviction will result.
