Sentencing Alternatives for Marijuana Offenses in New Jersey
New Jersey has several diversionary programs for first-time drug offenders. These programs include Pre-Trial Intervention (PTI) and the conditional discharge program. These programs can only be used once in your life but upon successful completion of the program, you can avoid any criminal record. You may also use New Jersey’s Drug Court Program if you have several drug offenses on your record and need treatment as opposed to state prison time. It is imperative that you have an experienced drug crime defense attorney who will examine your case to identify all possible issues and defenses concerning the search, the traffic stop, etc. They can also ensure that you are aware of, and have access to, all of the available sentencing alternatives for which you may be eligible.
