Judge Bill Harmon, Harris County Criminal Court Judge #2, has been the only judge that does not allow the DIVERT program in his court. I have written before how frustrating this is as a Houston DWI Attorney to tell your client that because of the court their case falls into they are not eligible for a program that would save them thousands of dollars and could potentially lead to the expungment of their DWI case.
Recently, a visiting judge ruled that Judge Harmon has the authority to disallow the DIVERT program in his court. I have a feeling that this is not the last we heard of this issue. I still hold out hope that Judge Harmon will change his mind as the program heads to its one year anniversary. Regardless, the decision is being appealed to a higher court.
