Houston DIVERT Program

When the Harris County District Attorney's Office rolled out the DWI Divert program in August Judges Mike Fields and Bill Harmon would not allow a defendant to reset a case for the year that was required. Thus, these two judges decision precluded anyone from entering the program. As of this week only one judge in Houston is against the DIVERT program since Judge Fields approved the first person in his court. I predict judge Harmon will follow suit within the year.
