Eligibility for probation before judgment is limited. You are not eligible if you have been convicted of the same offense previously or have been placed on probation before judgment for any other offense within the last five (5) years.
Even if you are eligible, it is in the court’s discretion with the prosecution’s consent whether you will be allowed to enter into the Probation Before Judgment Program. Under probation before judgment, you are placed on probation under the conditions set by the court. If you successfully complete these conditions, you are discharged from probation without any judgment of conviction (which means that points are not assessed).
