    There will only be a meaningful translation if the legal concept exists in a French-speaking legal system, and I'm not so sure it does. You would be better to describe it explicitly, in my opinion.

    Hello culdaff,
    Could you please give more context?
    Yes, it would be a guilty or no contest plea that is entered but no conviction is entered a that ime. The defendant is given a time period during which he may not reoffend and will pay whatever court costs are necessary and do whatever community service or courses that are recommended by the end of the set time period. At the end of this time, the charge will be dismissed if the defendant has done all that he was told to do and has not reoffended.
