What is Juvenile Pre-Trial Intervention?
The goal of the Juvenile Pre-trial Intervention program is to give youth offenders a second chance. JPTI is designed for offenders age 17 or younger who have been charged with non-violent crimes. The offenders must undergo counseling, education, community service programs and other requirements that may be related to the crime(s).
After successful completion of this program, charges against the offender may be dropped.
Why should I participate in JPTI?
If you are convicted of charges by entering a guilty plea, or by being found guilty at trial, the conviction will remain on your criminal record for the rest of your life. Juvenile Pre-Trial Intervention offers you a chance to clear those charges from your permanent record.
