I am suspected for misdemeanor. I am scared that this might appear on my record. I am willing to travel land and sea to get a diversion program. I was told that Los Angeles courthouse only offers diversion programs for drug cases, but I read a post for an attorney recommending a defendant to push for a diversion program. This is my first time offense. I am a hard science student and I was planning to work as a scientist for any of the following entities: the state of California, Los Angeles County, San Diego County, or even Los Angeles City or San Diego City.
