26 Hour Deferred Entry of Judgment (DEJ) Program


The Deferred Entry of Judgment Program is a "Diversion" program 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.

Under California Penal Code 1000 (PC 1000) the defendant must agree to have his or her case referred to the probation department to determine if they are eligible for the diversion program. If the probation department agrees that the offender is eligible, the judge will set a hearing after the referral to the probation department.

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.
