Pretrial Diversion: Promises We Can't Keep.
Matthews, William G.
Journal of Offender Counseling, Services & Rehabilitation, v12 n2 p191-202 Spr-Sum 1988
Discusses the pretrial diversion movement as a client-centered "helping" approach designed to replace the antiquated punitive orientation. Suggests that the diversion movement has failed to achieve most of the reforms or goals originally formulated. Proposes that its survival is dependent upon sufficiently serving the political interests of the jurisdiction in which it is located. (Author/BH)
