This is Samuel and I will provide you information in this regard.

I suggest, "abeyance" is a type of plea. What it means is the defendant is on probation with terms and conditions that need to be met. If those are not met, then the case will be brought back to court by the District Attorney.

A judge will agree to Abeyance if the District Attorney makes the recommendation.
