Orlando Diversion Programs

Representation from an Orlando Criminal Defense Lawyer

In criminal cases, what is known as the Diversion Program is sometimes offered in lieu of other penalties and as an alternative to normal criminal proceedings. Some cases that are believed to be lower in seriousness may not require the full process that other cases need, and an alternative was developed for these situations.
