    Hi pollypocket,
    I was wondering about your pretrial diversion.
    I'm a pre-nursing student and I made a terrible terrible decision that I regret making everyday since, I was charged with a misdemeanor for petty theft in California also. I know I cannot undue what I have done. I just want to move on with my future and hope for the best.
    I know this is a thread about licensure but how did you go about getting a retrial diversion? Did you hire an attorney or were you represented by public defense? How did your case get dismissed? (I'm not getting clear answers form legal help websites.)
    Is there hope for me yet? I'm so happy for you and congratulations on your licensure!!

    Dear Pollypocket,
    My friend lives in Santa Clara county of CA. She received few days ago Misdemeanor citation for Petty Theft. She has a clean background with no priors of any kind. This citation of petty theft was for a $10 of food.u
    She is anxious to get a letter in the mail about the pre-filing diversion program. Do you remember how long it took you to receive the letter about a diversion program that upon successful completion, there will be no records and conviction? And what the name of your program and what were required in that prog? Her court is in barely 1 month so any info here is tremendously appreciated. So many thanks!!!! She is very anxious now because she is applying for jobs and she gets sick with remorses and worries.
