Drug Diversion - Proposition 36 and PC 1000
For some drug charges, many offenders avoid jail entirely. Under Proposition 36 or
PC 1000 drug diversion, some non-violent drug offenders get probation and a drug
treatment program instead of jail time. This initiative allows 1st and 2nd time non-violent,
simple drug possession offenders the opportunity to receive substance abuse treatment
instead of incarceration. Once you complete the drug treatment program successfully,
your drug charges conviction is erased from your record, and you are not considered
a registered drug offender.
Alternatives to Jail - Treatment Instead of Punishment for Drug Crimes
When it comes to drug cases, treatment is often a more appropriate sentence than
jail or prison. This is because it is important to help people with their drug problem
and not simply punish them. If you have been arrested for a drug-related offense,
there are various treatment options. Alternatives include Proposition 36, PC 1000,
Diversion, and Drug Court.
With the help of an experienced attorney, people accused of drug possession can often
get alternatives to jail, such as rehabilitation. Those arrested for more serious
drug crimes can see their sentences minimized through skilled negotiation.
