Question: I was in the California Deferred Entry Judgment program for a misdemeanor 5 years ago and completed it.? I was in the California Deferred Entry Judgment program for a misdemeanor 5 years ago and completed it. I am now applying to become a police officer. Do I answer yes or no to ever having been arrested?
Answer: For almost any purpose deferred entry of judgment completely erases the existence of the arrest and relieves you of any duty to disclose the arrest. The one exception spelled out in the law is that a person applying to become a peace officer of any sort must disclose the arrest. The DOJ is authorized to disclose it, so if you do not do so, you will be automatically denied for lying on the application.
1000.4. (a) Any record filed with the Department of Justice shall
indicate the disposition in those cases deferred pursuant to this
chapter. Upon successful completion of a deferred entry of judgment
program, the arrest upon which the judgment was deferred shall be
deemed to have never occurred. The defendant may indicate in response
to any question concerning his or her prior criminal record that he
or she was not arrested or granted deferred entry of judgment for the
offense, except as specified in subdivision (b). A record pertaining
to an arrest resulting in successful completion of a deferred entry
of judgment program shall not, without the defendant's consent, be
used in any way that could result in the denial of any employment,
benefit, license, or certificate.
(b) The defendant shall be advised that, regardless of his or her
successful completion of the deferred entry of judgment program, the
arrest upon which the judgment was deferred may be disclosed by the
Department of Justice in response to any peace officer application
request and that, notwithstanding subdivision (a), this section does
not relieve him or her of the obligation to disclose the arrest in
response to any direct question contained in any questionnaire or
application for a position as a peace officer, as defined in Section
Question: what is a journal entry of judgment? I was needing to know what is a journal entry? is it the final judgment, and can it be stopped? there's a foreclosure involved.

Question: Notice of motion and motion for entry of default judgment? My Ex and I divorce two years ago and I learned a few months ago that the house went into forclosure. I don't recall being on the mortgage loan but it is on the tittle. I recieve Notice of motion and motion for entry of default judgment and a court date sometime this week. My question is what if I don't go to court? what could happen to me?
You can bet that if you are on 'title' your are probably on the loan.
While you may not care if your ex loses the home, don't be so sure that you do not have some type of liability. I would check with your attorney to see what her records indicate. While not an issue two years ago, it could be today. With many loans, you do not just lose the home, the borrowers may be liable for the lost value / equity on the property. There also may be some tax issues that may effect you.
I'd get involved. If you and your ex are on good terms you may be able to get a copy of the loan docs. that would go a long distance to addressing your concerns!
Question: What exactly is a deferred entry of judgment? Who qualifies and how do you get it?
Answer: A deferred judgment means you have been convicted of a crime, but the judge has given you a second chance. upon completing the terms of your probation such as fines, probation appointments, therapies and such, your conviction is removed and you get to go on in life with no conviction, but if you violate the terms of probation the court can order you to jail or what ever the sentence was without any hearing because you have already plead guilty. Usually only those with no previous records or minor items in their records are eligible. this deal is usually struck before your final court date as a plea bargain
Question: What is a "Deferred Entry of Judgment?"? What exactly is a Deferred Entry of Judgment?
I'm 16 and I got caught doing something I shouldn't have. It was reduced to an infraction and I already paid and went to court etc.
I took a CBI course, is that the same thing as a Deferred Entry of Judgment? I want to know if my record is sealed or if I need to file a petition when i'm 18.
I'm a really good student and I want to go to college, will this affect my chances? Thanks
Answer: It means adjudication withheld. Or, there is no conviction on your record, but there is a record. The last act is to "discharge" you and close the case.
Question: What is the accounting entry for proceeds from a judgment settlement?
Double-entry, cash basis. Received judgment settlement from contractor for breach of contract. Contract was for replacement of a roof.
Answer: Debit cash for the net proceeds and credit a miscellaneous income account or credit a new account called "judgement settlement". If you already had a balance sheet account associated with this judgement, the entry would be a debit to cash, a credit to zero out the balance sheet account and the remainder would go to a miscellaneous income or judgement settlement income account.
Question: Should I take the Deferred Entry of Judgment? I am being charged with resisting arrest and minor in possession of alcohol in CA. I was offered deferred entry of judgment on both counts, with two years probation, but I might be able to fight the case. I was on private property. The cop pulled up, I ran, and he caught me. I have to decide whether to take the deferred judgment or fight the case by tomorrow. Should I take it, or fight? (p.s. I donâ€™t mind probation, community service or fines; I just want to keep my record as clean as possible.)
Answer: Oddly enough, the MIP charge is the more serious one. A conviction on that charge will result in a one year drivers license suspension. So unless you think you have an iron clad defense to that charge (and it does not sound like it), take DEJ.

Question: Does a Stipulation for Entry of Judgment reflect on your credit report? I am currently undergoing settlement plans with a law firm that wants me to sign a Stipulation for Entry of Judgment. Initially I had signed a Promissory Note when I was 18, and without protecting myself by asking an attorney to review, I signed the Note agreeing to terms which I could not meet. After breaching the "Note" the law firm filed a complaint. Except now the law firm/company added additional fees that were not present in the aforementioned "Note." (approx. an additional $8,000). I assume this is because when I signed the initial "Note" I did not receive legal counsel to receive a Waiver from the firm to waive further fees. Today I received a phone call from the law firm informing me that if I signed the Stipulation for Entry of Judgment that it would not reflect on my credit, although I was told that signing such a stipulation will look bad on my credit and is essentially the same as a Judgment against me.
If anyone can please point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it. I'm a full-time student and they are really wringing me dry.
Answer: The lawyer might not make any entry to your credit report, but your creditor certainly will.
You need to seek out some free legal counsel.
Question: Differed entry of judgment?? Can I still go into the army? When I was 18 I took my step Dads car and ran away needless to say he reported it stolen and when I got caught I was arrested for Grand theft auto and possession of narcotics. The drugs were not mine but because I was driving and they were in the car on the floor I picked up the extra charge. I was given a differed entry of judgment and finished all of my classes, my community service and paid all of my fines without delay. Now 5 years later I would like to go into the U.S ARMY. I want to know because in the end the case was dismissed will it still show up on my record? I am very ashamed of my stupid decision and don't really want to tell a recruiter if I don't have too. Please just let me know do you think it will show up on my background check and if in the end it was dismissed can I still enlist??
Answer: deferred equals GUILTY especially since you had to do stuff..fines, community service, classes, etc.. to get them dismissed.
at this time you will NOT get a waiver as they are not authorized.
you MUST disclose everything.
Question: Whats on a notice of Entry of Judgment paper? I went to small claims court last year to sue some guy who hit me with his car. For some reason the commissioner saw it the other way, and I was suddenly at fault for the accident. Anyway, the question isn't whether I think I'm right or not. I lost the case, and I got the entry of judgment paper a few weeks later telling me I lost the case. The paper didn't say how much I owed the defendant, and no one ever contacted me about paying this man. Now the guy has decided to sue me back in small claims court saying that I never paid him. But, again, I don't recall anyone contacting me about a payment. Was this payment suppose to be on the entry of judgment? I'm not quite sure what to do now...anyone have advice? Please help...
Answer: I'm not sure what state you're in, and the laws are different in each state - or province.
Usually, there is a Judgment Decree (different names in different jurisdictions) of some sort issued. It will state the result of the judge's (commissioner's?) decision and outline the penalties imposed against the losing party.
An 'Entry of Judgment' could be the same, or it could just be notification that the judgment has been filed (entered) with the Clerk of the Court.
At this point, your best course is to talk (first) to the Clerk of the Court in which your case was heard. Ask them for a copy of the Final Judgment (that is actually what the clerk should have sent you). At the same time you might inquire as to the nature of the Entry of Judgment.
Once you've got that done, you need to determine if you had a financial penalty imposed and how much it was. It may not make sense to you (what you've explained is hard for me to understand, too) and if that's true, it might be in your best interest to call an attorney. Most will sit down and review your case for little or nothing in the way of fees. Lawyers do this to get a feel for the nature of the case and the probability of winning it. If you decide to do that, though, make sure you've got all the info as noted above.
Question: How will Deferred Entry of Judgment effect a job application? When I was 19 yrs old i worked at a Car Rental Business in California. I first worked as a car detailer then about a year later became a CSR. One day i was confronted about a customers account who they said i lowered the price from the original contract. I was arrested for Grand Theft and Computer related theft. Even though i did not open or close the account they thought the customer had got in contact with me and asked me to lower the price which never happened. I hired a very powerful attorney in the city. He informed me it would be very expensive to fight the case and recommended i take a DEFERRED ENTRY OF JUDGMENT. I was wondering if any one could tell me (preferebly someone in the legal field) how it will effect government jobs, state, or getting a real estate license? I am 26 and have had 2 other jobs since then with but i know getting a state or government job or apply for a state license they dig a little depper in your past. Will this effect the outcome of any application?
Answer: If you were arrested and not convicted, you will have fingerprints on file with the F.B.I.. You will somehow have to get it removed.Expunged Is the term, i think.

Question: Can a person with a Juvenile Deferred entry of Judgment visit someone in Corcoran State Prison? Ok so when I was 16 I was with this friend who was selling drugs. We were on our way to the mall and he said he had to stop at McDonald's to use the bathroom. Turns out he was going to do a deal. Next thing I know 3 cars block the ar we were in and I had about 20 guns in my face!! Well I was charged with possession, transportation and distribution. The lawyer told me that if I pleaded guilty they would give me DEJ which is Deferred Entry Of Judgment meaning that I would just have to complete a year of probation. I completed probation with flying colors. I was told that the charges would be erased once i turned 18 and they would not appear on my record. I want to visit a cousin who is currently in Corcoran State Prison but on the Visitors Application it asks if I have ever been arrested, charged or incarcerated. I ont know what to do. Should I put no or should I say I have. If i put down what happened will my app be denied? Also will this affect me if I wish to become a police officer or dispatcher. By the way this is in California
Answer: You should have never accepted that deal from them. You will have to get that expunged off of your record when you turn 18.
If you're off probation there is no reason why you can't visit someone in prison. Just be careful, don't accept anything from anyone at a prison. Do not pass notes. Not from an officer nurse inmate friend with you NO ONE!!
