SVCC Collaborates with Local County Prosecutors
"As prosecutors we are always looking for sentencing alternatives. Probation and/or incarceration doesn't fit every case, but often these are the only options we have," said Lezlie Green , Commonwealth's Attorney for Brunswick County (pictured above with SVCC's Assistant Professor of Administration of Justice, Alfonzo Stewart) .
Southside Virginia Community College now offers a diversion program, in collaboration with the Commonwealth Attorneys of Brunswick, Mecklenburg, Lunenburg and Greensville counties. The program is for offenders between the ages of 18 and 25 and is designed as an alternative sentencing option for approved criminal offenses.
