  • First time offender violates PTI and go in to court with no representation

    My husband is on PTI for theft charges that weren't pressed but never case closed, and that state picked up the charged and prosecuted him. He has violated PTI by having another accusation of a theft, but no proof and now a civil matter and the ca...

    Mitchell’s Answer

    I am confused as to whether he really did violate the conditions of PTI. If the theft charge was reduced to a civil matter instead of a criminal matter that is not a violation. He absolutely needs an attorney if he wants to continue in PTI. I recommend going back to the attorney that got him PTI.

    Mitchell’s Answer

    Since you are 17 you will be prosecuted in juvenile court-Superior Court, Family Part. You should NOT make a statement online, where it can be read by anyone, including the police. You need a lawyer before you go to court. Since there is no injury I don't think you are facing 17 years. You would be sentenced as a juvenile, if convicted. You need a lawyer to discuss this with.

    Mitchell’s Answer

    I don't know if this is a Crime Involving Moral Turpitude under the immigration laws. You should consult an immigration attorney. If it is a CIMT, you need to go to trial.

  • My son took a plea for conspiracy to commit robbery degree 3 it was supposed to be theft. Is that a felony?

    In NJ he should of gone to trial unfortunately he was there when it happened but he had nothing to do with it. He's interested in going to National Guard now we think it's ruined.

    Mitchell’s Answer

    Was there some reason your son did not apply, or was rejected, from Pre-Trial Intervention? PTI would have resulted in the dismissal of the charges after he completes a period of probation and pays back the value of whatever was stolen-restitution.
