Pre-trial diversions are granted at the discretion of the Montgomery County District Attorney’s office and are considered an extraordinary remedy to resolve criminal cases. If granted a pre-trial diversion, a defendant’s full compliance and cooperation with the Montgomery County District Attorney’s office and the Montgomery County Department of Community Supervision and Corrections (probation) is expected. Failure to comply with a pre-trial diversion contract can result in the revocation of a defendant’s personal recognizance bond and the prosecution of the underlying case. Pre-trial diversions are not to be taken lightly and are considered a remedy for individuals with compelling circumstances. Not every defendant is entitled to consideration for a pre-trial diversion.
