Pretrial diversion for misdemeanor cases in Indiana. Do you qualify, and is it a good option?

A person charged with a misdemeanor in Indiana has many options, including pleading guilty or taking the case to trial. Another option is a deferred prosecution or pretrial diversion, in which the case is kept pending for a period of time and later dismissed after compliance with certain conditions.

You can find information online about specific county pretrial diversion programs, but communicating directly with a prosecutor about your eligibility is to be discouraged. You are encouraged to consult with a criminal defense lawyer.
