We can discuss the possibility of entering a diversion program without ever returning to the State of Florida if this is your first offense. Successful completion of these diversion programs requires the prosecutor to drop all of the charges against you after you successfully complete the program.
You may be eligible to expunge your criminal record once the charges are dropped. Diversion programs are not right for everyone. When the charges can be proven beyond all reasonable doubt at trial or can be dismissed before trial, it is better to fight the case on the merits.
Certain professionals should be careful to discuss the implications of entering a diversion program with a Lawyer, especially college and graduate school students, doctors and nurses, lawyers, law enforcement officers, members of the military, teachers, and healthcare. Contact me today and I'll schedule a consultation so we can discuss the details of your case and best strategies to fight the charge.
