The District Attorney’s Juvenile Diversion Program is a national model that works with certain first-time juvenile offenders between the ages of 7 and 17, and their families, by offering an alternative to the juvenile court system.
The District Attorney’s Youthful Diversion Program offers certain first-time offenders between the ages of 17 and 21, an alternative to the court system. The program is based on the widely accepted belief that not all cases are best handled through formal criminal complaints and court hearings.
The program provides candidates the opportunity to receive comprehensive substance abuse treatment services in lieu of being prosecuted through the traditional court process.
