Diversion and Probation Issues Chapter 4 of the textbook has sections on diversion and probation. The “Statement on Probation” in Exhibit 4-3 specifically discusses the rights of all parties.

How about offender rights? Are the rights of the offender and the urgency to move a case through the court process given too much weight?
