This session will provide an overview of changes in the law for 2021 related to misdemeanor diversion and AB 3234. On January 1, 2021, AB 1950 and AB 3234 will go into effect, changing the maximum probationary sentence for most misdemeanor charges and providing for more expansive pre-plea diversion. Come learn about how the new laws will expand sentencing opportunities in San Diego County.
