A diversion program is a negotiated resolution that would guarantee that your criminal case is dismissed, once certain conditions were fulfilled. Such conditions could include, classes such as a theft class or drug course and community service hours or both. However, the end result is that your case is dismissed and you may then be eligible to have your case expunged, which would allow you to wipe the case off your record.
Regardless of whether you are charged with a felony or a misdemeanor, you may be eligible for a diversion program. Typically, such a program is only offered on certain types of cases and are not usually offered in cases that involve violence. However, our attorney have successfully obtained the diversion program for clients on serious criminal cases by establishing a lack of evidence through the discovery phase. We have gotten client's charged with Burglary with Assault/Battery and Aggravated Battery into a diversion program.
If you have been charged with a criminal offense, call Hager & Schwartz, P.A. to discuss your case and how our attorneys can help you through this difficult process.
