Prosecutors will agree to deferred judgment if you have a clean record and plead guilty so that they don't have to go through a long trial process. It is a win-win for prosecuting and defense. Prosecutor doesn't have to go to trial for some petty crime and defense has it removed from their record but has to keep their nose clean through probation and normally does some community service.
ok so i don't quite understand, so he has 18 months probation and if he does it without violation, it'll be removed from his record?
No problem, as someone just by the water cooler just told me...hence deferred judgement..."we won't judge you until you prove to us you can keep your nose clean and butt out of trouble for the next 18 months". If not 2 years in the clink.
Basically he needs to keep himself out of bad situations. He needs to make sure that he isn't involved with anything other than school and football for a little while. I would guess that if he was even in a fight he could get sent to jail for 2 years.
