(a)(1) If the offender violates the conditions of a pretrial diversion program established under this division, and the offender's participation is terminated, as an alternative to the imposition of a prison sentence, an offender who has violated the terms and conditions of a pretrial diversion program may be placed under the supervision of an existing community corrections program, or other alternative diversionary program, provided that the supervision is consistent with public safety and the best interests of the offender in furtherance of his or her treatment and rehabilitation in the community.

(2) The court and the offender shall be given written notice of the intent of the district attorney to terminate the offender from the pretrial diversion program including the reason for the termination. If the offender is unavailable for notice or has absconded, the district attorney may provide notice of termination from the pretrial diversion program, or any portion thereof, by giving notice to the offender's attorney of record or by regular mail to the most recent known address provided by the offender.

(b) The district attorney may waive a violation for good cause shown why the offender should stay in the pretrial diversion program.
