Probation Before Judgment (PBJ) is a way to resolve a case without creating a permanent conviction.

In traditional law, a defendant is convicted (at trial or by pleading guilty) and that put on probation.

With PBJ, the defendant agrees to serve probation first. If successful, the conviction is never entered.

Later, assuming uniform good behavior, the entire event, including the arrest and prosecution can be expunged.
