Court diversion program aims to get offenders out of the system

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. - Court diversion is a justice program that started in the 1970s. It addresses the needs of criminal offenders, their victims and the community in hopes the offender won't reoffend. If the participants are successful their charge is dismissed, which means they do not end up with a criminal record.

Willa Farrell is the Director of the Vermont Court Diversion Program.
