Precharge Diversion Program
Prosecutors have discretion to charge a crime or not charge a crime. A prosecutor’s decision to establish pretrial diversion programs for all crime types and refer offenders to those programs is inherent in the use of that discretion. The legislature acknowledged the discretion inherent in prosecutors when it passed in Minn. Stat. § 609.132 into law in 1994.  Click Here
