.........."In Miami-Dade, merchants' complaints go directly to Corrective Solutions, which then decides which cases merit prosecution.
"Our office has set the intake criteria for checks to be accepted into the program," says Assistant State Attorney Marie Jo Toussaint. "This criteria ensures that only checks which have violated our Florida statutes are eligible for this pre-arrest diversion program."
The records say otherwise. Of the 1,863 cases opened by Corrective Solutions, only 106 were actually filed in criminal court.".............
is it any wonder that this program exists in Miami-Dade Florida to such an extent ?
