Diversion Programs

Individuals charged with Drug Sales or Transportation crimes are generally NOT eligible for any drug diversion programs.  These programs are designed to accommodate drug users, not drug sellers.  However, if there is strong evidence in the case, our attorneys can often convince prosecutors to reduce the charges to Possession rather than Selling or Transportation.  This often results in the defendant being eligible for Diversion Programs such as PC 1000 and Prop 36.
