Pre-Trial Diversion Programs
The Troup County Solicitor’s Office has created a Pre-Trial Diversion Program whereby some offenders are given the opportunity to complete certain requirements and if they successfully complete those requirements, have their case dismissed. The program has certain threshold requirements each defendant must satisfy in order to be considered for the program. The requirements of the program may include attending a certified batterer’s intervention program, anger management program, ASAM evaluation and treatment, DUI school, community service, stay away provisions and other education and therapeutic components. Participants pay for the individual programs and pay a court cost upon completing the program.
