I am looking at my background report and I went through a program to get my charge dismissed. First time I have ever been through something like this and I am ignorant in what certain things mean. On my report is says disposition method: deferred proceeding or deferred prosecution dismissal. Does that mean they dismissed my charge being that I completed the program with my wife? it said disposed 12/02/15. I am in Raleigh, NC. Should it just say "charge dismissed"? Please help
That appears to indicate that your charge was dismissed pursuant to your successful completion of deferred prosecution.
No answer to these questions is intended to, nor does it, create an attorney-client relationship. There is no substitute for an actual conversation with a licensed attorney about the particular facts and circumstances of your case.
Yes, "deferred prosecution dismissal" means that the charges were dismissed after you successfully completed the deferred prosecution program.
