Incarceration and Conviction Alternatives Network (ICAN)

ICAN commenced in September 2019 in Tucson, under the direction of District Judge Rosemary Marquez and Magistrate Judge Jacqueline Rateau. It is a post-guilty plea diversion program created in conjunction with the Court, U.S. Attorney’s Office, Federal Public Defender’s Office, and U.S. Pretrial Services. The program is voluntary and upon successful program completion the defendant’s case would either be dismissed, reduced to a misdemeanor conviction, or no term of incarceration would be imposed. The program is designed to provide rehabilitation services to high risk defendants in a wrap-around approach by addressing individual risks and needs. The program takes a team approach to address both positive and negative behavior in order to facilitate positive prosocial change.
