Denton Pretrial Diversion Attorneys

Seeking Alternatives to Prosecution in Denton County

A pretrial diversion is a program available to some first-time offenders, instead of prosecuting them. It essentially allows them to continue with their lives under the supervision of law enforcement for some time, without carrying the long-term effects of a conviction. The County Probation Department supervises those in the program, and the exact details of the program requirements are tailored to the individual.

If this is your first time being charged with an offense, you may be eligible for a pretrial diversion (PTD) program. At Marsala Law Group, our lawyers have helped individuals throughout Denton seek alternatives to prosecution and sentencing. We know how this process works, and we will skillfully guide you through it to work toward a favorable result on your behalf.

Who’s Eligible for Pretrial Diversion?

Pretrial diversion is available for only some criminal offenses. To qualify, you must meet certain criteria.

The eligibility requirements for PTD include:

  • The defendant is a true first-time offender
  • The defendant committed a non-violent misdemeanor or low-level felony
  • The defendant has not previously been on a PTD program
  • The defendant has never had a deferred adjudication or judgment as an adult
  • The defendant must admit guilt to the alleged offense

Discuss your case with us, and we’ll help determine whether you’re eligible for a PTD program.

What Are the Conditions of Pretrial Diversion?

Being placed in a pretrial diversion program means that you agree to follow certain conditions for a set amount of time.

The terms of a PTD program are specific to each case and may include, but are not limited to:

  • Completing a counseling program
  • Maintaining employment or enrolling in an accredited school
  • Refraining from committing any new offenses
  • Refraining from using drugs and/or alcohol
  • Reporting to a probation officer monthly
  • Paying restitution to the victim
  • Performing community service

After you have signed a contract agreeing to abide by your conditions, your case will be removed from the court’s schedule. However, that does not mean it has been dismissed. For that to happen, you must adhere to the terms of your PTD program. Failing to do so means your case will be returned to the court for judgment.

If you complete the conditions of your PTD and your case is dismissed, you will be eligible to have the information cleared from your record.
