GA Pretrial Intervention Program PTI

The pre-trial intervention program, or PTI, is a supervised program designed to help first-time offenders avoid having their cases go to trial. Involvement in PTI includes submitting to random drug tests, performing community service, completing drug treatment, and possibly paying court fines.

The benefits of PTI include:

  • Avoiding the cost and complication of a trial
  • Avoiding the suspension of your driver’s license
  • A clean criminal record

It is important to understand that you must complete the program in order to avoid a trial and have the charges against you dropped.

PTI Eligibility

Not everyone facing a drug charge in Georgia is eligible to participate in PTI pretrial intervention programs. An eligible participant must:

  • Have no criminal record
  • Be at least 17 years of age

Juveniles and those with prior arrests or convictions will not qualify to participate.

Is PTI Right for You?

The first step in applying for pre-trial intervention is for your defense attorney to file an application on your behalf. To learn more about the PTI program in Georgia and whether it is an option in your case, schedule a free consultation with the attorneys at Kohn & Yager today.

  1. Hi there! Someone in my Facebook group shared this website with us so I came to take a look. I’m definitely loving the information. I’m bookmarking and will be tweeting this to my followers! Excellent blog and amazing design and style.

  2. Hi this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
