Post-charge Diversion and Deferred Prosecution Program

The Domestic Violence Fast Track program targets offenders that have not previously been charged with a domestic offense. The assigned prosecutor reviews the case and if appropriate will offer the fast track program. The purpose of the program is to hold the Initial Appearances in front of a Circuit Court Judge so that, if the defendant is in agreement, they can be sentenced at their first appearance. There is staff from our domestic abuse shelter, Harbor House to set up appointments for the Domestic Abuse Screening that are required. This allows the defendants to get the assessments and start any follow up much faster than the traditional court process. The defendants are offered a 12 to 18 month Deferred Prosecution Agreement.
