If the judge ordered a Deferred Imposition of Sentence on a traffic violation you will need to contact the court on/after the deferral period. A clerk will be able to grant the deferral if the balance was paid as ordered and there have been no new violations. Within a few business days the state will remove the points associated with the conviction from your driving record. Deferred criminal charges require the defendant or their attorney to request in writing that the deferral be granted. Certain government agencies will still be able to see record of charges but not the general public. The court is of limited jurisdiction and cannot expunge a record but defendants may petition in a District Court to have the physical and electronic record of a conviction destroyed.
