Military Diversion Program
Under Penal Code section 1001.80, a member, or veteran, of the U.S. Armed Forces may qualify for the military diversion program. This program allows the courts to require a defendant to obtain mental health treatment instead of imposing a jail or prison sentence. Once all terms and conditions of the program are completed, the court will then dismiss the criminal charges without the defendant having suffered a conviction.
The military diversion program is available to members/veterans of the military who are facing misdemeanor charges, including DUI charges. Additionally, the veteran must also show that he/she MAY have been suffering from sexual trauma, traumatic brain injury, post traumatic stress disorder, substance abuse or mental health problems as a result of their military service. After the court determines that the veteran qualifies, the court may then place the veteran in the pretrial diversion program. Usually, the program requires the veteran to seek treatment at their local Veterans Affairs hospital and appear in court every three months for progress reports.
Our firm is very experienced with this program. Feel free to contact us if you have any further questions.
