Juvenile Diversion Program

Our Juvenile Diversion Program offers certain eligible juvenile offenders an alternative to formal prosecution.  The program diverts select juveniles into the program before they are arraigned in court, protecting them from having a criminal record. 

Diversion allows the juvenile an opportunity to participate in remedial programs, receive counseling and/or perform community service in lieu of prosecution.  The goal is to address the root causes of juvenile delinquency and to work with the juvenile to make better choices while also minimizing any life-altering negative consequences. 

The program seeks to treat juveniles, not as criminals, but as children in need of aid, encouragement and guidance.

For more information on juvenile diversion, please contact Megan Storing, Diversion Program Director, at 781-897-8572 or megan.storing@state.ma.us .
