PJC’s (Prayer for Judgment Continued) are issued by judges, not a deal given by the DA’s Office.  This is a common misconception in NC, with individuals feeling like they can just ‘use a PJC’ and then find out that the Judge can deny it.  PJC’s are great tools to prevent license suspension and DMV points, but they need to be used strategically as they can sometimes hurt you more than help you if used improperly.

Do the research first.  It will save you from paying someone like me to attempt to re-open a case, reverse time, and change what already happened.
