Application
I am charged with the offense(s) listed above, which are crime(s) or motor vehicle violation(s) that are not serious in nature, but could result
in a jail sentence. (Select all that apply.)
I have a psychiatric disability and my mental or emotional condition is not caused only by substance abuse. Without care and
treatment, my mental or emotional condition has substantial adverse effects on (strongly interferes with) my ability to function.
I am a veteran as defined in General Statutes § 27-103, and I have a mental health condition that is amenable to treatment
(can be treated).
I am applying for the Supervised Diversionary Program. If my application is granted, and I am allowed into the program, I agree to the
following:
1. To give the state more time to prosecute me (the tolling of the statute of limitations and the waiver of the right to a speedy trial)
for the offense(s) listed above if I do not successfully finish the Supervised Diversionary Program.
2. To any condition(s) that may be required by the Court Support Services Division (CSSD) about my taking part in the Supervised
Diversionary Program, including conditions about my taking part in meetings, treatment, or sessions of the Program.
I also understand that I cannot take part in the Supervised Diversionary Program if:
1. I am not eligible for the Accelerated Pretrial Rehabilitation Program under General Statutes § 54-56e (c), unless I am not eligible
for that Program because I am eligible for the Family Violence Education Program under General Statutes § 46b-38c instead,
and the court finds that the Supervised Diversionary Program is better for me than the Family Violence Education Program under
the circumstances of my case.
2. I have used the Supervised Diversionary Program twice before.
I also understand that:
1. The court will send notice (tell) any victim of the offense(s) listed above that I have applied for the Supervised Diversionary
Program, and that the victim can tell the court whether he or she thinks I should be allowed to take part in this Program.
2. CSSD will confirm my eligibility for this program, get an assessment of my mental health condition, and find out if the right
supervision, treatment, and services options are available for me. If so, CSSD will make a treatment plan for me, and give that
treatment plan to the court.
3. If my application is granted, and I am allowed into the Supervised Diversionary Program, the court will refer me to CSSD, which
may work with the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, the Connecticut Department of Veterans Affairs, or the
United States Department of Veterans Affairs, where appropriate, to give me the right supervision, treatment, and services. A
probation officer who has a reduced (smaller) caseload and specialized training in working with people who have psychiatric
disabilities will supervise me.
4. Information about me and why I took part in the Supervised Diversionary Program will be available to State and local police
officers for five years after I am allowed into the Program, even though the charge(s) for the offense(s) listed above will be
dismissed if I successfully complete the Program.
5. Details of my mental or emotional condition or substance abuse issues may be made known to the court, and may become part
of my court file.
I give my permission to CSSD to get information about whether I have used the Supervised Diversionary Program before and whether I am
eligible for the Accelerated Pretrial Rehabilitation Program.
