The Deputy County Attorney may allow the defendant to enter into the Pinal County Attorney’s Adult Diversion Program. Program participation is contingent on a defendant’s eligibility as well as the discretion of the assigned prosecutor and the Court. For example, Program participation may not be available to violent offenders, or persons who have been convicted of prior felony crimes. Under this Program, the defendant will be required to sign a contract, whereby he/she admits to committing the crime and agrees to abide by certain conditions for a period of time, including paying restitution to the victim.
