Video: What Is Tarrant County’s Deferred Prosecution Program (DPP)?

Are you under age 24? Is this your first – and hopefully last – arrest? Are you interested in avoiding a conviction and removing the arrest from your record? If so, the Tarrant County Deferred Prosecution Program could be the opportunity you are looking for. In this short video, Attorney Alex Thornton describes the Tarrant County Deferred Prosecution Program (DPP).

Video Transcript:

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.

More Information:

We hope you found the information about DPP useful. For more information about Tarrant County’s programs, please visit our page on Diversion Programs. You can also visit Tarrant County’s website for more information.

As former Tarrant County prosecutors, we’ve been on the other side of the DPP process and vetted and interviewed candidates who applied to the program. Now as defense attorneys, we are extremely successful in getting our clients into DPP. However, the most important factor in the admission process is you. The DPP process begins by hiring an attorney who will guide you through the application process.
