Avoiding Conviction And Jail
Some first-time offenders can avoid a conviction, jail and a criminal record through pretrial diversion. In this outcome, a final resolution of your case is postponed while you complete certain activities, such as community service, restitution of the stolen property or education. If you comply with the terms of the program and stay out of further trouble, the charge against you will be dismissed and no conviction will be entered on your record. At some point, it may even be possible to expunge the arrest from your record. Our attorneys have helped many people obtain these types of outcomes. If you are eligible, we can seek a pretrial diversion outcome for you.
