Adult Felony Diversion


Adult Felony Diversion targets low risk, low need offenders. The County Attorney recommends this program for first time, non-violent felony level offenders. This program is for defendants who have had little to no contact with the criminal justice system. Essentially, this program gives low risk offenders a second chance. If the defendant agrees to enter Diversion, he/she will sign a contract agreeing to complete a number of tasks within a period of a year. For example, the participant may be required to complete counseling, write a letter of apology or complete community service. If the participant remains of good behavior and completes all of the tasks, the felony charge against him/her will be dismissed.
