OUR REVIEWS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES

Pre-Trial Intervention (PTI) is a diversion program that is run through the County Prosecutor’s Office at the Superior Court level for defendants charged with indictable offenses. As a general rule, only first-time offenders are eligible for PTI which allows a defendant an alternative to the traditional criminal justice process. Moreover, certain crimes such as second degree offenses, weapons, and drug distribution are normally not eligible for Pre-Trial Intervention. PTI seeks to render early rehabilitative intervention to deter future criminal behavior. This is because the PTI program is based on a rehabilitative model that recognizes the causal connection between the offense charged and the rehabilitative needs of the client. Therefore, the PTI office focuses on the social, cultural and economic conditions which often result in the defendant’s decision to commit an offense. The probation monitoring, community service, and counseling through PTI aims at solving the personal problems of participants that lead to the crimes committed and the ultimate goal for these participants is to be deterred from future criminal involvement.
