Your best bet is to speak to the prosecutor to ask for a deferred. The prosecutor can agree to the deferred, making it more likely that the judge will grant it. That said, even if the prosecutor doesn't agree, if the judge determines that a deferred is appropriate, then he can give it to you over the prosecutor's objections. You can plead guilty or no contest and still receive a deferred. In reality, unless there is a civil case too, pleading guilty or no contest doesn't make a difference.

Once all conditions of your probation have been fully satisfied and the case has been dismissed, the court records may be sealed/ The statute requires court clerk's offices to delete the defendant's name from the docket sheet, expunge the public filing of the charge, and keep a separate and confidential index of the case. In most court clerk's offices, the process includes the removal of the defendant's file from the main file area. Additionally, the court information will be redacted from the clerk's computer and also from any public access website such as the Oklahoma Supreme Court Network (OSCN). As a result, when the defendant's name is XXXXX XXXXX at the courthouse or by computer, no information regarding the expunged case will be found. However, if the defendant's case number XXXXX XXXXX some information regarding the case may still be available. In most cases, any information specific to the defendant remains undiscoverable.
