Dismissal, Deferred Judgment and Diversion in Colorado
Burnham Law will assess the case against you and determine a strategy that will achieve the most beneficial outcome including seeking to have all charges dropped or reduced. A Deferred Judgment involves filing an initial guilty plea which, upon the successful completion of probation, is withdrawn and the case is dismissed and will not appear in future background checks. Diversion allows the defendant to avoid jail or pleading guilty providing certain conditions are met. If the defendant successfully completes the program requirements, the case is dismissed.
