Can I get a diversion of any charge(s) against me?
A diversion is an agreement between you and the City Prosecutor related to the disposition of the charge(s). A diversion agreement allows you to avoid a conviction on your criminal history, if successfully completed. You must submit an application, and the City Prosecutors have discretion to determine the qualifications and requirements of any diversion program. You may be required to pay fines, fees or restitution; attend classes or counseling; perform community service; write essays; refrain from certain conduct; or meet with a court services officer. If you comply with the terms of the diversion agreement, the charges against you will be dismissed. If you do not comply, the City may revoke your diversion and proceed with prosecution.
