Drug Diversion Programs
Alternative Drug Sentencing Options
Are you facing drug crimes charges? Is this your first offense? If so,
then you may be eligible for a form of alternative sentencing known as
a drug diversion program. Under California Penal Code section 1000, a
defendant could participate in a certified drug diversion program in place
of going to jail.
With more than 100 years of combined legal experience combined with decades
of experience representing clients accused of drug crimes, our Riverside
drug addiction counseling lawyers know how to mitigate drug sentences.
At Blumenthal Law Offices, we seek to mitigate the criminal consequences
our clients face by placing them into drug or addiction treatment programs.
We believe in getting you the treatment and help you really need, not
putting you in jail for your mistakes.
Do You Qualify for Drug Diversion Programs?
There are several other criteria that you must meet to be entered into
the drug diversion program.
To qualify for diversion:
- You must be a first-time offender
- You must not have been enrolled in drug diversion in the last 5 years
- The crime must not involve violence or threatening violence
Our experienced legal team is very familiar with these programs and their
requirements. We know how to quickly evaluate your situation to determine
if you qualify, and then take steps to make it happen.
Whether you are facing charges or are the parent of a juvenile or
college student facing drug charges, do not waste any time in seeking alternative sentencing
options such as drug diversion programs. The sooner you understand what
you are facing and what steps you can take, the sooner we can protect
your rights and your future.
