What “Pre-Trial Diversion” is and How it Helps First-Time Offenders

If you have been charged for a first-time, non-violent crime, you have plenty of options at your disposal. You are more than likely qualified for what is called “pre-trial diversion” (PTD), a program that targets first-time, nonviolent offenders who have been charged with crimes like shoplifting or drug possession.

To qualify for the program, you need the recommendation of an experienced attorney....

A recent Foundation for a Drug-Free World study showed that 50% of teenagers believed that prescription drugs are “much safer” than street drugs. If you have been arrested for possession of prescription drugs, please contact a lawyer immediately....
