Jason "Gummi Bear" Davis was arrested in January for Possession of a Controlled Substance, Under the Influence of a Controlled Substance and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia, after he was caught with Heroin in his possession. Davis struck a plea deal with prosecutors that required him to participate in a drug diversion program. If Davis was successful, prosecutors agreed to dismiss the charge. Davis completed the program successfully and, as a result, the drug possession charges were dismissed last week.
In Nevada, Possession of a Controlled Substance is an extremely serious charge which can result in a felony conviction and possible prison time. However, just as in Davis's case, drug diversion programs are available to some offenders which can result in a reduction or even dismissal of charges. Drug diversion programs are not limited to exclusively first-time offenders, and are not limited to simple possession cases. Sometimes, drug diversion programs are even available to persons charged with Possession of a Controlled Substance with Intent to Sell or
Trafficking in a Controlled Substance.
