Duke Rape Suspect Blows Diversion Deal in Assault Case

Colin Finnerty got diversion in a D.C. assault case, but he failed to not get rearrested.  So, he's going to trial.  I think this kind of condition is very unfair--a person can get arrested for any reason.  Even if there's PC, it does not mean Finnerty did anything wrong.  A condition that the person not commit any crimes, that would be fine, but it is not fair to create a condition which is beyond the control of the defendant.
