Drug Diversion programs are for first offense drug defendants. Diversion is the procedure of suspending the criminal prosecution of an individual, by allowing the offender to complete a drug education, drug treatment, or drug rehabilitation program instead of further criminal proceedings.
Diversion has become a very popular method of alleviating congested court calendars, while at the same time allowing first-offenders to avoid the blemish of a drug conviction on their record. The program often allows offenders to avoid a criminal record by completing drug education or a drug counseling program.
If a first offense drug defendant has an otherwise clean criminal record, judges generally will find a defendant eligible for the deferred entry of judgement program without requiring a formal eligibility evaluation.
You must obtain preauthorization from the court before enrolling. Policies may change without notice, and there is no guarantee that you will be approved for online classes by the county courts.
The 26 Hour class meets California’s Penal Code 1000 PC as a Deferred Entry of Judgment (DEJ) Program.
