Orlando Attorneys Handling Pretrial Diversion

Orlando Attorney

When you have been arrested for a crime, you need to make an important decision regarding the type of attorney you will choose to defend you. At The Umansky Law Firm in Orlando, we know that everyone makes mistakes, and we understand how frightening it can be to be arrested for the first time in your life. We believe that you deserve a second chance. Pre-trial diversion is a program that exists for just that reason: to give first-time offenders a second chance.

We Are Here To Make A Difference In Your Life

Orange County and Osceola County both have diversion programs. In Orange County, the program is called pre-trial diversion (PTD), and in Osceola County, it is called County Diversion Program (CDP). CDP is very similar to PTD. In both, your attorney negotiates an agreement on your behalf. Once you comply with the terms of the agreement, the charges against you are dropped.

Our criminal defense lawyers know that pre-trial diversion can truly make a difference in your life, and we strive to help you enter an agreement that helps you avoid a criminal record and jail time. While it may be difficult to negotiate an agreement and obtain acceptance to the program, we make it a top priority to do so on your behalf.

When you enter a PTD program, you are required to comply with the terms of the program. In many ways, PTD is similar to probation. When you successfully complete the program, all charges against you will be dropped. Typical conditions of PTD include:

  • Community service hours
  • Counseling or treatment for a specific problem
  • Monthly reporting
  • Fees

We may be able to negotiate agreements that are tailored to the specific nature of the alleged crime. We work with the appropriate parties to ensure that your rights are protected at all stages of this process and to ensure that you obtain the second chance that you deserve.

PTD Eligibility

Florida Statute Section 948.08 states that, “Any first offender, or any person previously convicted of not more than one nonviolent misdemeanor, who is charged with any misdemeanor or felony of the third degree is eligible for release to the pre-trial intervention program on the approval of the administrator of the program and the consent of the victim, the state attorney, and the judge who presided at the initial appearance hearing of the offender.”

Violating Pre-Trial Diversion Agreements

If you violate the terms of your agreement, you may be removed from the program and face the original charges, a possible conviction and potential sentencing in the criminal court.
