A Prayer for Judgment (PJC) is more formally called “Prayer for Judgment Continued.”  Depending on several factors, when a defendant pleads guilty, or is found guilty, the judge may decide not to enter a final judgment.  Sounds great, right?

Well, it’s not that simple.  The court is not allowed to grant a PJC for certain offenses and PJCs may be treated like convictions in other matters.  You may, also, be limited on how many you can have before experiencing other negative effects.  Before seeking a PJC, contact us to see if this is the right choice in your case or if there may even better options available.
