You’ve made a bad mistake, and now are faced with trial and a conviction.
You need to make a decision which is best for you and your family. Your lawyer tells you about this program the State Prosecutor is offering you were you will have to go into a diversionary program, but if you are successful, the charges against you will be dismissed. This option is commonly referred to as PTI, or Pre-Trial Intervention.
The offer from the State Prosecutor is to enter into the diversionary program, undergo probation, community services, and a rehab program for drugs and alcohol. You are also going to be required to be processed, have your fingerprints taken and you “mugshot.”
Once you have completed the PTI program, its as if the arrest and charge never happened. You will have no criminal record.
