The Deferred Prosecution Program (DPP) is a limited supervision program designed to give the young person in trouble for the first time the chance to rehabilitate himself or herself without the stigma of a criminal conviction.
DPP is available to offenders, aged 17 to 24 at the time of the offense, who have not been previously convicted or supervised for a Class B offense or above, and are willing and able to rehabilitate themselves.
The Deferred Prosecution Initiative (DPI) is designed to give first time offenders a second chance with sobriety through deferred prosecution, an alternative approach to traditional criminal prosecution.
DPI is available to offenders 25 years of age or older at the time of the offense. The offender must not have been previously convicted or supervised for a Class B offense or above, and is willing and able to rehabilitate him or herself.
