Description

Court Diversion is a state-wide local community justice program for youth and adults. The program began in the late 1970's and operates under the auspices of the Attorney General. Court Diversion follows a restorative justice model: putting right the wrongs that have been done by addressing the needs of all stakeholders, including the victim, the community, and the offender. Diversion participants have been charged with a criminal offense but are not adjudicated. The State's Attorney refers individuals to the program, and participation is voluntary. Participants accept responsibility for violating the law and work to repair the harm they caused and, if successful, the prosecutor dismisses the charge, and participants do not end up with a criminal record.
