The court ordered me to go to the court. So does this mean I am still serving a misdemeanor deferred adjudication or is it off of my record now? I'm just not sure how it would show up on my record. I turned in my certificate of completion to the court and they said my case was dismissed... also, will this be counted as an "attempted misdemeanor offense?" or is that a whole different charge. I was never arrested.. the officer just came and gave me a citation for petty theft and when to appear in court. The DA then offered me a diversion class & once completed I had another court date to show my certificate of completion and I was told my case is dismissed..
It sounds to me like you were diverted from both an arrest for the charge as well as a conviction. Since you were never arrested or fingerprinted, you're not in the criminal justice system databank. The charges were dismissed before they were even formal charges through an arrest and arraignment.
