Depending on the nature of the offense and the Defendant’s prior record, he or she may be eligible to enter one of New Jersey’s diversion programs.  These programs, such as Conditional Discharge, Pre-Trial Intervention (PTI), allow a person charged with an offense to carry out certain obligations imposed by the court.  If successfully completed, the court may then dismiss the charges against the individual, which would mean no conviction record for that case.
