GA PROBATION
DEFERRED ADJUDICATION
FOR DRUG OFFENSES


There is a third type of probation in Georgia. It is for first time drug offenses and it involves what is called deferred adjudication. This means that if you have not been convicted of a prior drug offense, the judge can place you on probation and can require you to undergo rehabilitation including medical treatment for up to three years.

If you successfully complete this probation, the charges are dismissed. However, if you violate your probation, the court may find you guilty and sentence you accordingly. One immediate benefit is that your Georgia driver's license will not be suspended.
