Pre-trial diversion programs are one of the major ways to get a domestic violence charge dismissed.
If you qualify for a diversion program and successfully complete it, the domestic violence charges against you are guaranteed to be dismissed—making the diversion programs a great way to avoid trial, which is NEVER a sure thing in terms of whether the jury will decide if you are guilty or innocent of your alleged crime.
There are some downsides with the diversion programs, however. For one, they usually require a higher level of anger management courses, sometimes all the way up to the 26-week Batter’s Intervention Course. These classes are time-consuming and costly.
Also, if you don’t complete every single requirement, or if you are re-arrested, you will fail out of the program.
