Representing You No Matter Where You Live

NOTE: The fact that the 'victim' does not want to prosecute is not enough, by itself, to get charges 'dropped' by the State. Florida law states that it is the public policy of the State of Florida to prosecute even when the 'victim' opposes prosecution. However, the State Attorney's Office may give great weight to a 'victim's preference and this can be used in negotiations. Do not attempt this on your own: You could wind up with witness tampering charges.

First Offender Diversion Programs are one of the rare instances where the legal system "gets it" in the best possible sense of the phrase. However, that being said, it is often critical that such programs avoid "one size fits all" counseling and mental health treatment programs. The diagnostic protocol of "what is your charge" = "[Charge Name] counseling" is not recognized by any reputable psychiatric or psychological association. Any mental health or substance abuse treatment mandated by any diversion program should always be custom tailored to the needs of the person entering into any First Offender Diversion Program - because that is what actually works.
