This paper explores prosecutor-led diversion programs for misdemeanor defendants in Cook County, Illinois. A previous evaluation found that Cook County’s misdemeanor diversion program succeeded in reducing recidivism. The present study sought to dig deeper by comparing three groups: 1) defendants not diverted; 2) defendants diverted into the standard two-session program; and (3) defendants diverted into an enhanced program that included a risk-needs assessment and varying program mandates based on risk. The study found that conviction rates were lowest among those in the enhanced diversion program, although re-arrest rates were lowest among those in the program without the additional risk-based component. As 85 percent of participants overall were assessed at a minimal to low risk for re-offending, it is possible that the establishment of multiple risk-based tracks in the enhanced program was unnecessary.
