    Answered . The short answer is no. You are entitled to only one conditional discharge or PTI. The law only provides for a one time usage. It would smart to consult a lawyer to discuss your options

    This answer does not in any way establish an attorney/client relationship and does not constitute legal advice.

    Answered . No. You may partake in one and only one diversionary program. That said, there will probably be other ways to avoid jail time depending on the charges and the facts. You should consult with a lawyer to determine what your options are and determine whether there are defenses.
