State V. D.E.
We were able to secure a stay of adjudication for 1 year, sentence which included no additional executed jail, 3 days of Sentence to Service, and only a $300.00 Fine.
* Stay of Adjudication: a Defendant pleads guilty to an offense. However, the Judge does not “accept” the guilty plea. Rather, you get a Sentence of a “Stay of Adjudication.”
A conviction for an offense is not entered on your criminal record, provided you successfully complete probation. Once you do, the charges are dismissed, and your criminal record is clear of any convictions.
