Benefit of Nebraska's drug Diversion Program

Have you been arrested for a drug crime in Nebraska? If so, you are not alone as many other people have been and are in the same situation as you. However, that does not take away the uncertainty and perhaps even fear you may feel about your predicament at the moment. While you are working to understand the ins and outs of the criminal justice system, you will have many decisions to make. Among these decisions may be whether or not to enter the state's drug Diversion Program.

Run by the National Safety Council, Nebraska, the primary benefit of the drug Diversion Program is that you may be able to avoid having a criminal conviction on your record. After a typical criminal sentence is complete, a defendant can still find it hard to move forward in life as the conviction may interfere with many basic necessities. Criminal background checks are standard for most jobs, rentals and even loans. This can preclude your ability to find a good place to live or get the job that you are truly qualified for.

If you have never been in a diversion program of any kind Nebraska or in any other state, you may be eligible for the Nebraska drug Diversion Program. Lack of any prior misdemeanor offenses or other current charges in process are also requirements. The program usually lasts between six months and one year.

If you would like to learn more about drug offenses, please feel free to visit the diversion page of our Nebraska criminal defense website.
