The best possible outcome is a dismissal or an acquittal at trial. The worst possible outcome is ten years in prison. And there are at least a dozen other outcomes in between. If pretrial diversion is offered, it's a good option because it guarantees a dismissal. However, the program are often very intense so be realistic about your ability to be successful on it before you sign up.

As always, it depends on the details. In Travis County, pretrial diversion is a good way to go.
