Upon Successful Completion
Once a defendant completes all of the program requirements and his/her monitoring period has elapsed, the District Attorney’s Office will “DECLINE PROSECUTION”.
The District Attorney will refuse or dismiss the criminal charges, pending successful program completion. However, the District Attorney’s office does not have the defendant’s arrest record expunged. If a defendant wishes to have the arrest record expunged, it is the defendant’s responsibility to do so after successfully completing the Diversion Program.
