Section 45-16-82.30Pretrial Diversion Program Fund.
The district attorney shall establish a Pretrial Diversion Program Fund. Except for the monies payable timely by the district attorney to the circuit clerk, county commission's general fund, and law enforcement agency pursuant to subsections (c), (d), and (e) of Section 45-16-82.27, fees paid by offenders pursuant to Section 45-16-82.27 shall be placed into the Pretrial Diversion Program Fund. The district attorney shall use the funds in the Pretrial Diversion Program Fund to pay costs associated with the administration of the pretrial diversion program and to pay those things earlier herein provided for or for other law enforcement or criminal prosecution purposes. Costs associated with program administration shall include, but shall not be limited to, salaries, rent, vehicles, uniforms, professional or business attire, telephones, communication equipment, postage, office supplies and equipment, training and travel expenses, service contracts, and professional services. At the discretion of the district attorney, after considering an offender's reduced or inability to pay, the district attorney may pay for services or programs for an offender out of pretrial diversion program funds while the offender is in the pretrial diversion program, if special circumstances and justice dictate. However, the district attorney may require the offender to repay these funds.
