Prior to entry into the Adult Diversion Program, clients must first be referred by the prosecuting attorney. Once referred for consideration, a Probation Officer will meet with a client to assess their individual circumstances and determine suitability for the program. If accepted into the program, clients will agree to perform unpaid community work service, pay restitution, and abide by other conditions defined within a Diversion Contract. Upon successful completion of the program, the prosecution is so informed, and the client becomes eligible for a dismissal of the criminal charge(s). Clients who are declined entry into the program or fail to comply with terms of a Diversion Contract, will be referred back to the prosecuting attorney for further action on their case.
