Q: What happens if you dont complete 1 of the requirements in your deferred adjudication for theft under $100 in texas?
I have never been arrested before. I was not arrested for this offense, I was given a ticket for theft under $100. I met with the ADA and they offered a differed adjudication. I have completed all required but 16 hours of community service. Everything is due by Aug. 14. What will happen if that is not completed
A: Deferred adjudication means that the finding of guilty has been put off (deferred) for the duration of your probation. If you violate the terms of your probation by failing to perform your community service, the judge can enter a finding of guilt. This would constitute a conviction for theft, which is a crime of moral turpitude. It can never be expunged or even sealed, assuming your an adult.
Instead of writing this question, why aren't you out performing your community service? you have 4 more days. Plenty of time to get it all done.
Kiele Linroth Pace agrees with this answer
A: Life is hard for convicted thieves. If you fail here, there will be some good jobs for which you are permanently not eligible. Make a plan and get it done. If you don't get it done in time, show your plan to the ADA and beg for more time to finish... or hire an attorney to do that for you.
