Program Participation Eligibility
Since 1994, King County's Adult Drug Diversion Court (KCDDC) expanded legal eligibility criteria on four occasions. In 2003, a drug court calendar was added at the Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent, and in recent years KCDDC significantly increased the availability and range of treatment and ancillary services.
Transferring Cases Into KCDDC
Defendants whose cases have been filed mainstream may ask to have the case reviewed again by the Prosecutor. Defense attorneys are to provide a completed transfer request and any supporting documents to the KCDDC Prosecutor for his/her review. A copy of the transfer request should also be provided to the prosecutor's paralegal. The King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office can be reached at 206-296-9000.
