Marietta attorney Diana Whipkey Young specializes in Divorce and Family Law, Personal Injury, and Criminal Defense.

PRETRIAL DIVERSION PROGRAM

 

Any criminal charge you are facing can cause anxiety, frustration, embarrassment and serious consequences to your educational options and job options. Any arrest will be entered on your criminal history record. When you are applying for a job, to rent an apartment, for credit, and for many other reasons, your criminal background check will be accessed. This may prevent you from getting that job, renting that apartment, obtaining a loan for a home, qualifying for financial aid and student loans, and from many other opportunities such as employment and government security clearances. A diversion program is one way to get around some of the consequences if the person meets certain requirements.

 

Municipal and State Diversion Programs

 

Some offenses may be able to be resolved by a pretrial diversion program. Such programs allow the individual to complete certain requirements and if successful have their criminal charges dismissed and then removed from their criminal record. Not all courts have established pretrial diversion programs, and some programs in municipal courts are not as appealing as some in State Court. Therefore, it may be better to transfer your case from a municipal court such as in Kennesaw, Acworth, or Smyrna to the State Court of Cobb County. Our experienced attorney can help you decide which is the better choice for you.

 

Who Can Apply for the Pretrial Diversion Program?

 

The Pretrial Diversion Program is generally for first time offenders in offenses such as Minor in Possession of Alcohol, Minor in Possession of less than an ounce of marijuana, and theft by shoplifting. The State Court of Cobb County’s Pretrial Diversion Program requires you to have an attorney.

 

Attorney Diana W. Young has helped hundreds of first time offenders qualify for and successfully complete Pretrial Diversion Programs. She wants to help you. Please contact the Young Law Firm to help you if you are in this situation. Give us a call today at 770-795-9596.
