Use of forms without the assistance of an attorney could harm your legal rights. You may want to have an attorney review your completed forms before you file them with the court. These are basic forms and may not cover every situation.
Policy No. 1.100
1.101. Adoption of Program. In accordance with K.S.A. 22-2906 et. seq., the Saline County Attorney’s Office hereby adopts a pre-trial diversion program for those accused of committing a crime.
1.104. Application Procedure. The accused seeking diversion shall apply on a Diversion Application available at the Saline County Attorney’s Office, or on the Saline County website. The application must be made, and the appropriate fees paid, prior to the preliminary hearing.
1.105. Continuances. If diversion is being considered, it will be the defendant’s responsibility to obtain a continuance of the case.
1.106. Diversion Agreement and Stay Order. The agreement and stay order shall be prepared by the Diversion Coordinator.
1.107. Diversion Report Forms. The monthly report forms are available through the Diversion Coordinator. Report forms will be furnished to the accused.
1.108. Diversion Approval. The Diversion Coordinator shall conduct a criminal history check of the accused, review the file, and perform any other investigation that must be done to determine if diversion is appropriate for that case. The Diversion Coordinator shall make a recommendation to the County Attorney as to whether or not diversion should be granted, as well as recommendations for the length/terms of said diversion. The County Attorney shall approve or deny the diversion application. Application fees are non-refundable if the application is denied.
1.109. Diversionary Term. Providing that all conditions of the diversion agreement have been met/completed, and the accused has had no further violations of the law while on diversion, the accused may be considered for early dismissal after completing at least half of the original diversionary term.
1.110. Juvenile Diversions. The same diversion requirements apply to both juvenile and adult offenders, except that the fee/fine schedule may be different.
