October 9, 2009, Newsletter Issue #187: Does a Diversion Agreement Require Me to Attend DUI Class?

Tip of the Week

The diversion agreement is an option for someone with only one DUI conviction. The agreement is usually available only if the offender agrees to plead guilty or no contest to the drunk driving charge. They are then entered into the diversion program where an offender must complete a set of courses, counseling, rehab, or other required action. If these are done successfully, the court can dismiss the DUI charge.

Remember, you must successfully finish a DUI class and fully comply with all court orders to complete the program. Anything short of this can land you right back in court with all charges and penalties. The diversion agreement is not easy to complete, for those who are eligible it is a second chance that should be taken.
