What is the definition of this statement

Re: Wirtheld Judification
The statement is supposed to be "withheld adjudication". It means that the court withheld making a decision or "adjudication" on the case, in other words, whether the person is innocent or guilty in a criminal matter, and rather allowed the person a chance to do something else such as probation and community service. Usually, if the person fulfills the court's requirements without further trouble, the arrest will be purged from the system and the person will get a clean slate.
That is generally what happens, although I don't know for sure in the particular case you have since you do not give any details.
