Judge Mike Fields, presiding Judge of Harris County Criminal Court at Law No. 14, is not
allowing the DWI DIVERT Program in his court. As a
Houston DWI Lawyer, I understand the judge's position that he feels this is a deferred
adjudication in disguise. Nevertheless, it makes it difficult to explain
to my clients that they will be treated differently in his court. Interestingly,
the judge did say that he will consider a traditional pretrial diversion.
I am curious to see how the
Harris County District Attorney's Office will handle this situation.
