Maricopa County aims to keep nonviolent first-time offenders out of prison with waiving their diversion program’s entry fee
In the past, if you were a first time offender with a drug-related or non-violent crime, you could get out of prison time (depending on your case) by taking an expensive diversion program. The entry fee for one of these programs was a staggering $630. Maricopa County has recently combined both of their programs and will now waive the entry fee. The Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel hopes that this measure will keep these first-time offenders out of prison and back into society. With locations in Bullhead City, Lake Havasu City, Tempe, AZ, and Las Vegas, NV, Rideout Law Group can assist you in negotiating and fighting for your rights.
