Pre-trial Diversion

Pre-trial Diversion Programs offer alternative resolutions to criminal prosecution. These programs are generally aimed at addressing underlying issues influencing criminal behavior, and they promote rehabilitation and successful reentry to society. All three counties within South Florida's tri-county area have implemented diversion programs for both adults and juveniles. Diversion options should be a first consideration for any new case by prosecution or defense.
