Question:

The judge turned down my request for diversion. Can I appeal that?

Answer:

Defendants who are denied diversion and ultimately convicted can appeal a judge’s refusal to admit them to a diversion program. However, these appeals rarely succeed.

To learn more, see Nolo's section on Diversion and First Offender Options for a Criminal Charge.
