Diversion & Alternative Sentencing

Post-trial diversion and alternative sentencing options provide opportunities to direct individuals to rehabilitation-focused interventions that balance the interests of justice with treatment. Most importantly, they avoid incarceration for individuals who meet certain sentencing conditions. Often involving suspended sentences and/or probation, alternative sentencing can be as creative and flexible as a judge and community resources will allow. Examples of alternative sentencing include community service, assisted outpatient treatment, and other required participation in appropriate treatment, including problem solving courts.
