(a) a discharge under the programme to inform the victim, his or her community and lawyers that the offender is being treated under the programme and to provide information to the victim, his or her community and lawyers for security reasons; (c) Authorization for the programme to disclose information about the offender to relevant legal entities, including lawyers, courts, probation, child protection services and child protection services.

There are many approved treatment centers and individual providers for DVBT processing. They are updated annually by the DSHS and are listed by city in the “perplistcity.pdf file can be found online: HERE. It`s fair to say that the name of this list reflects the “perplistcity”, as you might expect to be covered in a DVBT program for a year. Most of my clients prefer to avoid it and instead go to mental health or addiction treatment (or both, if necessary). DVBT treatment is almost never covered by health insurance, while alcohol/drug and mental health treatment are usually covered, usually either 80% (20% co-payment) or 50%. DEFERRED SENTENCES, EXTENSIONS OF DECISION AND COURT-SUPERVISED DIVERSION (CMD) – OTHER TYPES OF INJUNCTIONS POSSIBLE WITHOUT IMPRISONMENT, EHM OR CONVICTION, IF YOU QUALIFY, YOUR LAWYER KNOWS HOW TO PURSUE THIS RESULT AND YOU REMAIN COMPLIANT: Some, but not all, courts/prosecutors require that an order prohibiting contact with the victim be issued as a condition of the SOC. Others will want a sergeant until a certain level of counselling is completed.
Still others do not make a sergeant a part of the SOC at all. This is really done on a case-by-case and case-by-case basis. It is important to remember that if no contact is part of the agreement, the violation of the order would have two consequences. The first is that the violation could result in the revocation of the SOC, which would most likely lead to an automatic guilty verdict with respect to DV`s underlying charges. The second is that it would be an entire crime called violation of a contact ban. When entering into a SOC, always try to negotiate the sergeant outside the agreement, or at least within the SOC, establish a schedule within which the sergeant can be removed. This will help protect you and your SOC as you move forward. Let me know if you have any questions about any of the above materials. (9) The Division for Children, Youth and Family Affairs may, as part of its plan to certify programmes for perpetrators of domestic violence and to monitor the implementation of rules adopted by the Secretary of the Division for Children, Youth and Family, conduct on-site monitoring visits to determine whether programmes to combat domestic violence meet the minimum qualifications.
The applicant or certified family violence program must fully cooperate with the Ministry of Children, Youth and Family Affairs during the monitoring visit and provide all administrative and program documents requested by the Ministry of Children, Youth and Family Affairs to determine whether the program meets the minimum certification qualifications and rules adopted by the Ministry of Children. Youth and families. Things are constantly changing, but currently, the only court that calls what is essentially a continuation of SOC provision is the Seattle Municipal Court (a “world apart” type of court with its own online portal and case database, which is different from the JIS – Judicial Information System and Odyssey Portal – that all other courts in Washington State use). and with its own forms, which are quite unique to this court, and in addition, the application of the Seattle City Code – “SMC” provisions, with strange names for many offenses (for example, they call DUI “persons under the influence of intoxicants and/or drugs, a rather old or outdated term). It is also, to some extent, a court with its own procedures and procedures. So, if you have been arrested by a Seattle Police Department officer for non-criminal assault, DV, DV assault, or any other non-crime charge, your case will be filed by the Criminal Division of the Seattle District Office in Seattle City Court. Court-supervised diversion (CMD) is currently designated only as such and offered in Snohomish County and only in Everett City Court, which also has its own slightly unique approach, forms and procedures, as well as approved remedies, but not as part of Seattle City Court. The continuity of disposition and CMD provisions are essentially identical and, therefore, are generally just different names or designations for identical provisions without conviction and without jail.
Any domestic violence programme for perpetrators of domestic violence must be certified by the Department of Children, Youth and Family Affairs and meet minimum standards for dealing with domestic violence. The Department of Children, Youth and Family Affairs should issue rules for the approval of programmes to combat domestic violence. Treatment must meet the following minimum qualifications: Other forms of treatment, which alone may be sufficient in less serious (de minimis) or more serious cases, are recommended by me to obtain a better agreement with the prosecutor, including impact committees on victims of domestic violence and anger management, either Level I (one Saturday for 8 hours) or Level II (2 consecutive Saturdays of 8 hours on consecutive weekends). All SOCs, with very rare exceptions for factual models that are relatively minor (i.e., not so serious) require the person to undergo some form of treatment. Typically, successful SOC requires participation and completion of a state-approved treatment program for domestic violence or thugs. In some cases, depending on the court, the prosecutor and the wishes of the victim, the nature and scope of the treatment program may be negotiated. This means that, if accepted, the SOC could be achieved by completing a less rigorous anger management program. Or, you may need to supplement alcohol counseling as an additional or unique type of treatment during the OCS. Typically, both the state and court require racketeering treatment before accepting a SOC in a DV case.
Be sure to discuss all your counseling options with me before entering a SOC. (NOTE: For other types of non-domestic violence related non-crimes for which an SOC order is issued, such as shoplifting fees for Theft 3, “treatment” may consist only of a few hours of community service and/or a theft or consumer awareness workshop). In other cases, psychological counseling and/or medical treatment may be ordered for medical conditions that contributed to the client`s alleged crimes. The treatment of domestic violence typically performed by the courts, whether for a conviction or one of the non-conviction orders (SOCs, etc.) discussed above, or for a conviction, varies depending on whether the defendant was drunk or stoned at the time of the alleged incident, actually has a bona fide mental health problem, and how serious the domestic violence was – a small scratch or injury and barely swelling Noticeable. Face, etc. A good but lengthy guide on this topic is “COURT-MANDATED/DIRECTED TREATMENT FOR DOMESTIC VIOLENCE PERPETRATORS” by Anne L. Ganley, Ph.D., of the Washington State Administrative Office of the Courts` DV Manual for Judges 2015. It`s online: HERE.
