Do you feel unexplainable rage? Does that feeling interfere with the relationship with your partner or immediate family?

For some non-violent crimes, such as theft, a Pre-Trial Diversion program is an option. A candidate for diversion is willing to take responsibility for their actions and participate in a court mandated program for a period of time. The goal for a theft diversion program is to promote responsible behavior to prevent future offenses. The program addresses defense mechanisms and roadblocks that prevent taking responsibility, stress management, financial accountability and responsibility, money management and alcohol/drug abuse awareness. Completion of the program, in addition to other court mandated requirements, can lead to the expungement of a first-time offense.
