Pre-Trial Intervention Program

The Florida criminal justice system offers an alternative to formal criminal prosecution, but this alternative is extremely difficult to get, and it is primarily available to first time offenders of non-violent crimes. In order to qualify for this program, the defendant or his or her criminal defense attorney must acquire the consent of the victim, the arresting police officer, the prosecuting attorney, and the presiding judge. The suspects with reasonably clean or spotless records who are not charged with serious or violent crimes are the most likely to be admitted into the program. The intervention program is a more palatable alternative to prosecution and incarceration.
