Should I do Savannah, GA Pre-Trial Diversion?

Should I do Pre-Trial Diversion?

If you are charged with certain crimes, such as shoplifting or even simple possession of marijuana, the prosecution may offer you a pre-trial diversion program.  This typically consists of 20-40 hours of community service, a risk reduction course, and fines.  The good thing about these programs is that if they are completed successfully, the prosecution will dismiss the charges against you.

Even though pre-trial diversion may seem like a good idea, you should consult an attorney before you agree to it.  If you are wrongfully charged with a crime, then you could waste time and money doing a diversion program when an effective criminal lawyer could have beaten the case.  Don’t let the prosecution’s promise to dismiss the charges confuse you; this is not the same as beating your charges.

At The Turner Firm, our goal is to help our clients beat their case.  Before you sign up for a pre-trial diversion program, give us a call to discuss your options.
