Purposes of program

The purposes of an early disposition program are to:

(1) Hold offenders accountable for their actions;

(2) Ensure a prompt resolution of criminal matters;

(3) Protect the rights of the public and the offender;

(4) Maximize use of community resources to provide alternative sanctions for criminal behavior; and

(5) Reduce the costs to the criminal justice system that are incurred when traditional sanctions are the only option available to district attorneys and courts. [2001 c.635 §7]
