Community Diversion Program

Purpose
A positive program for first-time juveniles who have violated the law, the Community Diversion Program gives these youth the opportunity to appear before a magistrate. The program is designed to allow first-time offenders (who admit their transgression) to work off their sentence through community service, writing an essay about the dangers of their delinquent behavior, or attending counseling sessions. Upon completion of the sentence, the juvenile's offense is forgiven.
