Well, Deferred Adjudication is a type of probation, but it differs greatly from normal probation. A defendant is placed on a probation for a certain period of time. If the probation is successfully completed, the case is "dismissed." A defendant will enter a guilty plea, but the judge does not find the defendant guilty and instead "defers" the finding of guilt. Pleading guilty for Deferred Adjudication is not considered a conviction under Texas law. A criminal background check will show the arrest for the charge, will show the Deferred Adjudication, but it will not show a conviction.
Therefore, of all conditions are met, there's nothing to clear up. The records of convictions will be clear and show no conviction.
