Diversion from Prosecution

In certain circumstances the Procurator Fiscal may decide to 'divert' someone to social work as an alternative to Court.  In these cases, following assessment, a social worker will work with the individual for a period of approx twelve weeks in order to reduce their risk of re-offending.  If the individual complies fully with this intervention they will not be prosecuted and not go to Court.
