The courts have processed very few cases during the COVID-19 pandemic. Cases that were completed during the pandemic were more likely than prior years to be withdrawals and dismissals because those types of outcomes could be easily processed without a court appearance. Many cases that require a court appearance are still pending.
The COVID-19 pandemic changed the way diversion programs operate, and changed the way case information and program outcomes are recorded. Diversion rates displayed below are likely an undercounting of the cases that are being resolved via alternatives to prosecution and incarceration, and cannot be validated at this time.
