Pre-Trial Intervention (also known as “PTI”) is a diversionary program in New Jersey which is available to certain first time offenders. “First Time Offenders” means an individual who hasn’t been convicted of an indictable offense previously and has not used a conditional discharge on the municipal court level in New Jersey. The PTI program is designed to allow first time criminal offenders to avoid prosecution for their offenses as long as they are eligible for Pre-Trial Intervention and satisfy the supervisory period of the program. As a result, if you have been charged with an indictable offense in New Jersey, contact an experienced criminal defense attorney at the Iler Law Firm to determine if PTI is right for you. Our lawyers are available immediately for a free initial consultation.
