Misdemeanor Diversion Program


The 2nd Judicial Circuit Misdemeanor Diversion Program offers offenders an alternative to prosecution.  If an offender is referred to the program, he/she will have 90 days to complete the following conditions.  Upon successful completion of all conditions, the charges will be dismissed.


  1. Pay a $100 fine to the State Attorney’s Office
  2. Perform 15 hours of community service
  3. Additional conditions could be imposed should the charge warrant it





Once your case has been received by this office it will be reviewed by an Assistant State Attorney.  If it is determined that you are a candidate for the program your case will be referred to Misdemeanor Diversion.  You will then receive a letter from our office indicating that you are eligible for the program.  You must appear on the arraignment date that the arresting officer gave you at the time of the incident to sign up for the program.   If you do not know that date please contact our office to verify the date and time of your appearance.


When you come to your court date you will bypass the courtroom and instead appear at the Diversion check-in table.  At this time you will receive the appropriate paperwork and the program will be explained to you in detail.  You will then have 90 days to complete the program and return your paperwork to the State Attorney’s Office.  Once we receive proof that you have completed all conditions the charges against you will be dismissed.


If you have additional questions please contact the State Attorney’s Office in the county in which the incident occurred.
