What is a Pretrial Diversion Program in Florida

Is this your first drunk driving (DUI) offense? If so, you may be eligible for a pretrial diversion program. This type of program is an alternative to jail and other serious penalties, much like probation is an alternative punishment for a criminal conviction.

Pretrial Diversion Program Requirements

To be eligible for a pretrial diversion program, you must be:

  • Facing misdemeanor or DUI charges
    • Individuals facing felony charges are not eligible
  • Have no more than one prior misdemeanor sentence for a different offense
  • Have no previous dismissals, convictions or sentences for a similar offense
  • Have no previous felony sentences
  • Be a legal resident of the United States
  • Have approval of the Office of the State Attorney
  • No previous alcohol/drug-related driving arrests, dismissed charges or convictions
    • This applies to individuals attempting to obtain approval for a DUI-related pretrial diversion program

Orlando Pretrial Diversion Program Benefits

If you successfully complete the program, you are guaranteed a dismissal of the DUI. The program has many requirements, including:

  • Community service, approximately a minimum of 50 hours
  • DUI level 1 school
  • Treatment and/or counseling if required by the program
  • Victim impact class
  • Random urine screening
  • 10-day vehicle impoundment/immobilization
  • Six-month ignition interlock device

Our attorneys will explore all options available and determine if participation in a pretrial diversion program is the most advisable course of action for your case.
