If you enter the DUI diversion program, the court will expect you to understand your responsibilities.
To have your DUII charge dismissed at the end of your one-year diversion period, you must do the following:
Pay to the court the required diversion fees. These include a $490 program fee.
Complete an alcohol and drug abuse assessment. The cost of the assessment is $150.
Pay for any treatment recommended by the DUI supervisor who performs your alcohol and drug evaluation and screening, and complete the approved treatment program.
Attend a victim impact panel and pay a participation fee. This program is now offered online. The fee for the victim impact panel in Jackson County is presently $50.
Install an approved ignition interlock device in any vehicle you operated during the term of the diversion agreement when you have driving privileges.
Pay to the provider installing the device any costs associated with leasing, installing, and maintaining the device.
Comply with state laws that prohibit the use of intoxicants.
Do not use any alcohol or other intoxicant during the term of the diversion agreement without the approval of the DUI supervisor.
