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.
