    Answered . The new arrest and charges should get you kicked out of the pre-trial diversion program. The benefit of the pre-trial diversion program is, usually, once you have completed the program you can have the charges expunged from your criminal record. Just because you have been kicked out of this program, and have new charges pending, does not mean that you will necessarily lose both cases. You still have other options available to you that can be used to fight these cases and possibly win. You should consult with an attorney to see what options and strategies you might be able to exercise.
