The Montgomery County Attorney’s Office will not disperse legal advice to any potential diversion applicant.
If a potential diversion applicant needs legal advice regarding his or her case, the applicant should contact an attorney. Additionally, if an adult Defendant wants to participate in the Diversion program without an attorney and must serve any jail time, the Defendant must sign a waiver of counsel form.
Any applicant who is under the age of eighteen (18) is required to have an attorney throughout the diversion application process.
The County Attorney will consider a number of factors in determining if Diversion is appropriate. Diversion is NOT appropriate in the following circumstances:
