The Honorable Clifford A. Brown, 147th District Court

Felony pretrial diversion is used in Travis County for a group of offenders that meet certain eligibility criteria. Through this program an offender is given a chance to avoid prosecution for an offense through successful completion of a period during which there are no new arrests, and all requirements of the term are completed.

Admission into the program rests in the sole control of the Travis County District Attorney's Office.
