Indiana Code, Section 34-28-5-1 (h)

Upon receipt of a summons or ticket for an infraction, you may be eligible to participate in an Infraction Deferral Program.  If you are eligible and wish to complete the program, then the infraction charge will be dismissed.  If you have already paid your ticket in the Clerk’s Office or missed your court date without re-scheduling, you are ineligible for this program.  Participation under this program is discretionary and the Prosecutor’s Office may choose not to offer the program even if you appear to qualify.
