Unfortunately, court orders are written up so that a judge understands them and not the person most concerned with the order, you.

It sounds like you are under a "deferred adjudication" which means the court hasn't accepted the plea yet, and if you complete your probation successfully then the charge is dismissed and no judgment of conviction is ever entered. This is how many of the court orders handle the plea in these kind of cases because if you don't complete the terms the judge rejects the plea as stated and enters it as a straight guilty plea.

However, this is based on the very limited information you provided. The best way to find out for sure is to contact the attorney who assisted you in the plea and ask if this is what it means.

Thank you for allowing me to assist you. I believe I have answered all of the questions you asked so I would request that you please click the ACCEPT button so I receive credit for my work and leave feedback if you have a chance. Please consider clicking "BONUS" as a nice way of saying "thanks" for a job well done, although this is neither required nor expected. Please remember that we can only base our answers on the information you provide and sometimes a misunderstanding as to what you are looking for or already know occurs so feel free to ask additional questions. Please be aware that my answer is not legal advice, it is merely information and no attorney client relationship has been formed. You should always contact a local attorney for legal advice.

Several customers have asked how they direct a question to me in particular. If you specifically want me to provide information for you just put “FOR TEXAS ATTY” in the subject line and I will pick up the next time I am online.

It happened in 2003 and i completed probation. So maybe thats not what it means.

Was that the last court order entered? You may want to check the court records and see if there was a subsequent order entered that either accepted the plea or dismissed the case.
