I agree with my colleagues - although generally speaking there is no penalty for a dismissed or deferred case, it would be prudent for you to seek the assistance of an experienced immigration attorney in your area. It is extremely important that an attorney look at your final disposition paperwork and confirm that your situation incurs no penalty. Please feel free to contact either myself or any of my colleagues here in the DFW area. My office is located in Plano and the information is below.
You should take the court records and speak with an attorney who has experience with criminal-immigration matters. It's important for an attorney to look at the exact wording of the charges, conviction, and sentence. Generally speaking, though, if a case is dismissed without any admission of guilt, then there should be few immigration consequences, if any.
