Pretrial Diversion Attorney in San Antonio
In Texas, first time offenders might qualify to participate in a Pretrial Diversion Program. Upon successful completion of the program terms, the case against a defendant will be dismissed. In many instances, the defendant is then able to clear their permanent criminal by obtaining an expunction of the charges. Pretrial Diversion represents a great opportunity for many first time offenders.
Upon applying and being accepted into a Pretrial Diversion Program, a criminal defendant must enter into a plea agreement with the State. Your attorney will review the terms of the plea with you and then you will go in front of the judge to formally enter your plea.
After you complete the requirements of your pretrial diversion agreement, your case will be dismissed. If possible, you should then apply to have your record cleared by having your charge expunged.
