360 deferred means instead of jail time you have a deferred sentence.Jail time will result if you violate the conditions of the deferred adjudication.

When you are placed on deferred adjudication, you are not sentenced. The judge deferrs a finding of guilt, and instead places you on probation. Your situation sounds like you are on probation for 360 days, and if you successfully complete that, you will not have a conviction.

Actually, when you are placed on deferred you are not sentenced to any time at all but simply placed on deferred probation for a period of X months or years. You cannot be sentenced to less than two years probation on a State Jail, so either this is a misunderstanding or your case is being reduced to a misdemeanor (which is certainly possible). When you are on deferred probation, the judge has the maximum punishment available to her if you violate. So on a State Jail, this would be two years in the State Jail. But if the case is being reduced to a misdemeanor, the maximum punishment on a revocation would be one year in the county jail. If you have not been sentenced yet, please ask all the questions you need to of either your attorney or the judge at that time so you fully understand the exposure you are facing.
