Explaining drug diversion programs in Maryland

If you have been charged with a misdemeanor in Prince George's County and do not have a prior record, it's possible for you to avoid prosecution and keep your record clear. The method used to make this happen is the diversion program. If the subject successfully completes a diversion program, he or she could have the charge dropped.

One of the most common diversion programs offered by the county is the marijuana diversion program. People who have been charged with possession of less than 10 grams of the drug as an initial charge could be offered a six-hour class or 24 hours of community service.

In order to take part in the drug diversion program offered by Prince George's County, offenders must remain drug free and are subject to urine tests. The offender must have a minimal record prior to this charge and cannot have any DUI convictions on his or her record.

Not everyone will qualify for the drug diversion program. Each case is different and the eligibility is determined by the Office of the State's Attorney. It's possible that first time offenders could be deemed ineligible for the diversion program. It all depends on the decision made by the Office of the State's Attorney.

This diversion program is only for offenders who are charged with marijuana possession and not for the possession of any other drug.
