If you received a ticket at the 2017 Country Stampede you might be eligible for a diversion. You may apply using the Diversion Application Form located on the Diversion page of this website. All applicants who wish to be considered for diversion must return a notarized diversion application, along with a $10.00 application fee (NO CHECKS WILL BE ACCEPTED), to the County Attorney's Office, PO Box 219, Westmoreland, KS 66549. Due to the number of tickets written, we encourage you to submit your application no later than July 24, 2017. Applications may be submitted by mail or in person.
Your ticket should indicate an appearance date & time of Friday, August 11, 2017, at 1:00 p.m. Appearances will be held in Courtroom B on the second floor of the Pottawatomie County Justice Center located at 108 North 1st Street, Westmoreland, KS 66549. No continuances will be granted unless you hire a private attorney and/or your diversion agreement has been filed with the Court. An application is NOT a completed diversion agreement.
The Pottawatomie County Office Staff cannot give you legal advise or determine whether you need an attorney. Please seek private counsel for those types of questions.
If you have questions regarding the status of your diversion application, please contact our office at 785-457-3511.
