DUI Diversion is a treatment program created by Nevada statute for DUI offenders who have been convicted of DUI three times within seven years.
Diversion is available only one time and only for the first felony DUI. The program lasts a minimum of three years, but can last up to five years.
If a participant successfully completes the program, he/she will be sentenced for a second offense DUI and will not suffer a felony conviction or go to prison.
If a participant fails to complete the program successfully, he/she will be convicted of felony DUI and sent to prison.
By law, DUI Diversion participants are responsible for 100% of the costs of their treatment. You will also be placed on probation during your participation in the program.
