(A) The defendant may enter a deferral of traffic infraction without court hearing upon appearing at the clerk's office, paying the administrative costs and signing the agreement to abide by the deferral conditions (no new moving/non-moving violations for six months). Alternatively, the Court may grant deferral at a scheduled mitigation or contested hearing, setting costs and conditions. (B) The court will monitor the defendant's compliance for the stated period of time. If the defendant successfully completes the conditions, the charge(s) will be dismissed. (C) The court may extend the jurisdiction up to a year if the defendant obtains a new pending violation and no disposition is shown. If the defendant obtains a new committed violation during the period of jurisdiction or fails to pay the administrative costs, the deferral will be revoked and the charge(s) found committed.
