Superior Court

 Diversion Program

Pursuant to G.L. 1956 § 8-2-39.3, the Rhode Island Superior Court Diversion Program is now underway and accepting referrals. The program is designed to offer an alternative to traditional conviction, sentencing, and incarceration by providing eligible defendants with a framework of supervision and services in lieu of incarceration and/or probation to help them make informed decisions, engage in positive behavior, and reduce the risk of recidivism.

The eligibility criteria and review process are outlined in G.L. 1956 § 8-2-39.3. A referral form is found on this page.​​​​
