Diversion Program for Crimes in Raleigh
If you or a loved one have been charged with a specific type of low level or non-violent felony, such as a drug or alcohol related case, shoplifting, or traffic violations, you may qualify for a diversion program. What this means is that you may be able to avoid going to prison by agreeing to participate in a special program offered to rehabilitate you instead of imprison you. We can work with you to determine whether you are a candidate for this program and if you are eligible, we may pursue this alternative program.
There are many different points of eligibility for this program that you will need to meet, which may include having no prior convictions or arrests. A Raleigh criminal defense lawyer from our firm may have to file a petition for you to help determine if you qualify.
The diversion program lasts one year and may include the following:
- Mandatory community services
- Substance abuse assessment
- Drug or alcohol awareness program
- Mandatory probation and fine
We are available 24/7 to answer your questions and concerns. Set up your free case consultation when you call us today at (919) 842-5461.
