San Diego Lawyer Explains How to Get Charges Dismissed

Video Transcript:

Tom Mustin: 

What is military diversion for misdemeanors in California and who is eligible?

Mark Deniz: 

Military diversion is a great tool for attorneys to use, and I think it's underutilized. Military diversion allows for veterans who suffer from PTSD or suffer from some kind of condition that created the charge itself or that gave rise to the facts of that. People are eligible, you have to see whether your charge fits the criteria, whether you actually suffer usually through veterans administration documents, whether you suffer from PTSD or that substance abuse and whether there was a connection between the incident itself and that individual's condition. But if you are, you wanna go down that road and explore it because in a great many of misdemeanor cases, especially for our veterans, if you go through this process, the end of the road is usually resulting in a dismissal.
