Good evening. nolle prosequi is when the State does not prosecute the case and dismisses/dropped the charges. When adjudication is withheld, it means that there is no conviction. The charge will appear on a defendants record but it is not a conviction.The only way in which the withheld adjudication will result in a nolle prosequi is if it was part of and/or a condition to a plea deal or the sentence which was imposed by the court.
Thank you for the basic definitions. You have been very helpful!
