When you are arrested for either a felony or misdemeanor in Jacksonville, Duval County, Clay County, or Nassau County, you may be qualified for the Pretrial Intervention Program. If you have little or no criminal record, your chances of being picked for this program go up. You sign a contract to be placed on a kind of “probation”. During that time, your criminal charges will not be filed. You will agree to either pay some amount of money, perform community service, or other duty. If you complete your end of the bargain, the state attorney will drop your criminal charges.
It is very important to contact a criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible after you are arrested on criminal charges in Jacksonville to look at the possibility of being placed in this program. Contact our Criminal Defense Attorneys in Jacksonville at (904) 634-0900. You will speak to a lawyer 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
