Do you know what drug diversion court in Travis County is, and who's eligible? We ask Austin attorney Sam Bassett for this AskTheLawyers™.
Drug diversion court is generally reserved for people charged with low-level drug offenses. It is almost like an outpatient program supervised by the court; it allows somebody to attend regular meetings, pass certain bellwether testing, and if they do that for a specified period of time, usually 6 to 12 months, then their case can be dismissed. It's a great opportunity to both get treatment for a problem and to get your legal case dismissed and be eligible for an expunction of your arrest.
