    You find out from the court.

    Hard to believe how many people deal with the criminal justice system and have NO idea how their cases got finalized.

    Withholding adjudication isn't akin to a pardon.
    Your criminal record is no longer unstained.

    I suggest you ask your lawyer for clarification.

    Search this site, lots of threads about deferred adjudication, adjudication withheld, or ask your lawyer.

    Generally, it means you stay out of more trouble for a specified number of months or years, the original charge gets dismissed.
