This will depend entirely on the terms of your DEJ. Review your court papers carefully. If you don't have them, go to the courthouse and ask the clerk to pull your file. You should also consider contacting the DA's office and see if they'll answer this question for you. If they do so, either get it in writing, or confirm their reply in writing. You should also contact your lawyer to obtain their opinion.
If after you try all of these options, consider hiring new counsel.
