If a participant does not have the funds or the ability to earn the funds necessary to enroll in Diversion, the participant can complete and submit to this office a Hardship Application for consideration. If the participant qualifies, the D.A. fees can be reduced or even waived or a payment plan can be developed. However, those participants who receive a partial or full waiver of their enrollment will likely be required to perform additional community service work in exchange for the assistance. The ability of a participant to maintain (or obtain) employment will be taken into consideration when granting any financial relief.
Please call the Diversion Office at (985) 809-8383 or email Diversion@22da.com to discuss this offer of fee assistance.
There are consequences to submitting a false affidavit to a law enforcement agency.
