Pretrial Diversion May Be an Option for Retail Theft or Shoplifting Charges

For many first-time offenders, pretrial diversion can be an option for avoiding a trial, possible conviction, and a criminal record. There are numerous conditions that need to be met for a person to qualify for and successfully complete a pretrial diversion. In many jurisdictions, you must have a criminal defense attorney to be admitted to this program. We will explain all of the conditions to you and will evaluate your situation to determine if you qualify for the program. If you qualify and choose to enter the program, we will take the steps to get you admitted into the program. Upon successful, completion, we also will work to get your record expunged (now called “restricted”) and the court records sealed.
