Federal diversion programs provide an alternative to traditional criminal prosecution for certain offenders. These programs aim to reduce recidivism rates, conserve court resources, and provide opportunities for treatment and rehabilitation. Here’s an overview of how federal diversion programs work and the benefits and risks of participating.
Pretrial diversion is a voluntary program that diverts eligible offenders away from traditional criminal justice processing into a period of supervision, treatment, and services. The major objectives of pretrial diversion are:
If the offender successfully completes the diversion program, they may qualify for a range of outcomes like dismissal of charges or a more favorable sentencing recommendation. However, failure to complete the program means they could be criminally prosecuted.
Each U.S. Attorney’s Office develops policies on the use of diversion appropriate for their district. While programs vary, the U.S. Attorney has discretion to divert offenders against whom a prosecutable case exists.
However, federal policy prohibits diversion for certain offenses without high-level DOJ approval, including:
Prosecutors cannot divert individuals if doing so would endanger public safety or violate obligations to victims.
There are also potential risks and drawbacks to federal diversion programs:
Studies show federal pretrial diversion programs have high completion rates. One analysis found 88% of diversion cases were satisfactorily completed.
Recidivism data is limited, but indications are diversion participants have lower repeat offense rates than traditionally adjudicated offenders. However, more research is needed on long-term recidivism impacts.
Consulting an experienced criminal defense attorney is highly recommended when considering pretrial diversion. An attorney can help assess eligibility, negotiate favorable terms, and provide guidance on risks and benefits. They can also assist with successful completion of the program requirements.
While federal pretrial diversion programs offer a chance to avoid conviction and incarceration, they require strict compliance. Thorough legal advice is important when evaluating diversion so individuals can make informed decisions. With proper legal guidance, these programs can provide opportunities for rehabilitation, restitution, and avoiding permanent criminal records.
