To get a deferred judgment, you need to be eligible for one, and you need to request it. The Judge is not required to grant it. There are several factors to consider. Regarding a trip to Canada, this can be a tricky proposition. You should consult with an attorney. Canada has an application process if this charge prevents you from entering the country.
