What is a diversionary program?

A diversionary program is an alternative to a traditional prosecution. In a traditional prosecution you must either negotiate some form of a plea resulting in a conviction or instead go to trial. The legislature, recognizing that not all criminal cases should be handled like a traditional prosecution, developed various programs to address certain types of criminal activity and circumstances surrounding it. These programs, if completed successfully, do not require an admission of guilt and will results in the charges against a person being dismissed. They typically involve some form of treatment to address underlying circumstances leading to an arrest and a condition that the person not get arrested again.
