Attorney Alex Boyd describes the Tarrant County Deferred Prosecution Program (DPP) in this short video.
DPP stands for the Deferred Prosecution Program. It’s a limited supervision pre-trial diversion program for first-time offenders who are 24 years of age or younger at the time of their offense. There are two separate tracks to the program depending on what you’ve been charged with. The range of the probationary period can be either four months or eight months, depending on whether you’ve been charged with a misdemeanor or a felony, and the pricing for the program also varies based on what you’ve been charged with.
