By Dallas and Collin County Criminal Defense Lawyer Jeremy Rosenthal
I recently blogged on some of the anticipated changes to the Collin County Deferred Prosecution Program that were in the works with the new District Attorney’s administration which you can read here.
One of the changes that I’ve recently learned about is that the DA’s office is not necessarily putting an age limit on who is eligible for the program. Previously, a person over 21 would not be eligible for the deferred prosecution program.
This confirms the new administration’s willingness to be flexible and to do the right thing in each and every case.
More updates to come.
