Pre-Trial Intervention, or PTI, is a diversion program that is governed by the court. Set out in Florida Statute 948.08, PTI is applicable most often to first time offenders. PTI applies in both misdemeanors and felonies of the 3rd degree that are not violent.
It is often the Judge who decides whether a person is able to get into a PTI program. However, the State Attorney can often influence a Judge’s decision. In some circumstances, if the State objects in a drug case, the State must prove that the defendant is dealing drugs.
