I was arrested for disorderly conduct and obstructing Justice/resisting arrest, both misdemeanors. The Disorderly Conduct was dismissed when it reached the DA and I pleaded not guilty to the obstructing justice/resisting arrest charge. After pleading not guilty to this charge II was subsequently offered a dismissal of the charge after a deferred judgement of 6 months, as long i stayed out ou trouble. My over all objective was to have both charges dismissed and my record expunged and the arrest record expunged or destroyed. Is there any difference between having this charge dismissed immediately or after a 6 month deferred judgement in regards to a criminal record of the dismissed charges. I was told this would appear as being placed on probation.
