California Penal Code
In a county in which the district attorney has established a community conflict resolution program, the superior court may, with the consent of the district attorney and the defendant, refer misdemeanor cases, including those brought by a city prosecutor, to that program. In determining whether to refer a case to the community conflict resolution program, the court shall consider, but is not limited to considering, all of the following:
(a) The factors listed in Section 14152.
(b) Any other referral criteria established by the district attorney for the program.
The court shall not refer any case to the community conflict resolution program which was previously referred to that program by the district attorney.
