Generally, if you are a first time offender, you may be eligible for diversion. It is up to the prosecuting attorney to recommend that you be placed into a diversion program. If such a recommendation is made, then you can apply to be accepted into the diversion program. A skilled attorney can help you get placed into this program. Some courts in Cobb County will only consdier allowing you to enter into a diversion program if you have an attorney representing your interest. Best of luck...
You are always best advised to recite the facts of your matter precisely and exact to each attorney you choose to speak with - this way you will receive guidance based upon consistent recitation of facts and will find yourself in a better position to choose the attorney for your case.
