The primary stages involved in processing a criminal case are summarized below to help you understand what happens when a person is accused of a crime.
In Some criminal cases the defendants are allowed to apply for a diversion. A diversion program in the criminal justice system is a form of sentence in which the criminal offender joins a rehabilitation program, which will help remedy the behavior leading to the original arrest, allow the offender to avoid conviction and, in some jurisdictions, hide a criminal record. Criminal charges are typically dropped when a defendant successfully completes a diversion program. Please review eligibility requirements and guidelines here before submitting the diversion application along with the $25 money order.
