What makes you eligible for a deferred prosecution?

To be eligible for a deferred prosecution you must state that the wrongful conduct (DUI) was caused by or a result of alcoholism (dependency), drug addiction or mental problems. Alcohol “abuse” is not included per se. In other words, you can have a problem with alcohol (abusive maybe), but it does not rise to the level of dependency – then you will not be eligible for deferred based on alcoholism.
