NON -DWI defendants might get PTI lite

6/24/12

A bill advances to allow NON -DWI defendants in municipal court cases treatment similar to pretrial intervention in Superior Court. The bill, A-3096, would create a conditional dismissal program, by which eligible participants would be placed on probationary status for a year or longer. Upon successful completion the charge would be dismissed. The main sponsor, Assemblyman Reed Gusciora, D-Mercer, says the bill is designed to cure a fundamental unfairness in the current system, where diversionary treatment is available for indictable crimes but not for minor offenses.
