Pretrial Diversion 
Pretrial Diversion is governed by TCA 40-15-105 and is also referred to as a suspended prosecution. It is important to note that the individual has not pled guilty or been found guilty yet. 


Pretrial Diversion 
A person may be granted Pretrial Diversion if the requirements as stated in the statute are met. A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) is entered into by the District Attorney and the Defendant. The Defendant must meet the terms of the MOU. If the terms are not met, the prosecution is no longer suspended and the Defendant is allowed to proceed with the case. If the Defendant chooses to, there can be a trial. When the diversion period is successfully completed, the Defendant asks the court to submit an Order of Expungement to TBI marked Suspension of Prosecution TCA 40-15-105.

With a Judicial or Pretrial Diversion, TBI must analyze an application for eligibility for Pretrial Diversion or Judicial Diversion. Please make sure that the diversion type requested is checked on the application. If the diversion type on the application is unchecked, the application will be returned unprocessed to the submitting attorney or agency.
