Pretrial Intervention

Pretrial Intervention, more commonly known as PTI, is a program for first time offenders who have been arrested for a non-violent third degree felony. Defendants choosing to participate in the program must waive their right to a speedy trial and complete a year long period of supervision by a state probation officer. During this period of supervision the Defendant may be required to make restitution, attend counseling and perform community service work in addition to the standard conditions. Upon successful completion of PTI the criminal charges are usually dismissed.
