Alternative Sentencing Courts

Run primarily through the Magistrates Court there are a number of what is known as “diversion” or “alternative sentencing” courts. These courts are set up to address specific types of offending and to provide sentences that are best suited to rehabilitating offenders.

Each diversion court has varying requirements that must be met before someone can become a participant of that court.
