Harris County DIVERT DWI Program

There is currently a program in Harris County that allows first time DWI offenders to avoid a final conviction for DWI. It is known as the DIVERT Program and it allows defendants to participate in the program and in return avoid a conviction for DWI.

Judge Bill Harmon is currently the only judge that does not allow defendants to participate in the program. He says that the program is illegal because it is the same as allowing a DWI defendant to take deferred adjudication for a DWI, which is prohibited in the state of Texas.
