Conviction and Sentence Alternatives (CASA) Program Overview

The Conviction And Sentence Alternatives (“CASA”) program is a post-guilty plea diversion program that offers a creative blend of treatment, sanction alternatives, and incentives to effectively address offender behavior, rehabilitation, and the safety of the community. Participation is entirely voluntary and must be approved by the judge assigned to the defendant’s criminal case.  During their time in the CASA program, participants will engage in a variety of programs to address underlying causes of their criminal conduct, and will attend regularly scheduled CASA program proceedings that will include reports on their progress in the program.
