A deferred sentence is a special form of probation where once you fill all of your requirements your conviction is withheld so that it doesn't go on your record. This operates like the dismissal of your charges. You would honestly be able to say that you have no criminal record. Your case would be reflected on your RAP sheet as an arrest and a dismissal.

.

Probation is a non-jail sentence where you have to report regularly to a probation officer, follow his or her rules and stay out of further trouble with the law. Deferrals usually include special probation requirements such as fines, classes and community service as well
