Criminal procedure: COVID-19 Alternative Adjudication Program.

Abstract

Existing law authorizes a county to establish a pretrial diversion program for defendants who have been charged with a misdemeanor offense and authorizes other diversion programs. This bill would establish the COVID-19 Alternative Adjudication Program. The bill would require a court to dismiss an accusatory pleading under the program if the defendant meets specified conditions including, among others, that 6 months have passed since the person was released from the arrest that lead to the accusatory pleading and the prosecution fails to provide clear and convincing evidence that the defendant committed a subsequent offense or that the defendant poses an unreasonable risk of danger to public safety, as defined. The bill would require a court dismissing a pleading pursuant to the program to determine whether restitution is owed to a victim as a result of an offense dismissed pursuant to the program, and would deem the arrest upon which the charges were based to have never occurred.
