A diversion is a contract between the defendant and the State of Kansas. The County Attorney’s Office represents the State of Kansas. Eligibility for diversion ultimately rests at the discretion of the Pottawatomie County Attorney’s Office.
Meeting the requirements alone does not create a presumption that diversion will be granted.
Any individual wishing to be considered for a diversion must complete and submit a notarized application with a $10.00 application fee. Personal checks are NOT an acceptable form of payment.
Completion of the Application and payment of the application fee are not required for speeding tickets. Those wishing to be considered for a speeding diversion, must provide a written request along with a copy of the ticket and a current mailing address and phone number.
