Client Charged With Arson in Santa Cruz County Given Diversion!

Santa Cruz County

Attorney Alexander P. Guilmartin recently received a fantastic result out of Santa Cruz County for a client who was charged with a misdemeanor for arson.  The client faced a potential sentence of one year in custody for the misdemeanor arson charge. However, Mr. Guilmartin was able to obtain diversion for the client which allows the client to have the charges DISMISSED upon completion of a fire safety class.

Diversion in a criminal matter is when the prosecutor and the defendant in a criminal matter enter a deal to dismiss charges upon completion of a diversion program designed to address the underlying issues behind certain criminal charges. Experienced attorneys like Alexander P. Guilmartin and the rest of the attorneys at Bay Area Criminal Lawyers, PC are frequently successful in negotiating diversion for clients enabling them to have criminal charges completely dismissed upon completion of the diversion program designated.
