You asked this earlier. The best thing to do is to look at your pretrial diversion contract and read the terms.

Not asking for myself for a friend

Tell your friend to do that, then. The consequences for violating will be in the paperwork.


You can be kicked out of that program. You need to read the terms of you agreement to see if you agreed to plead if you do not comply with the agreement or if your case just goes back on the docket and you are in the same position as if you had not accepted the pre-trial program. You should call the attorney who originally helped you.

I would add that a defendant in the situation you describe would be smart to get back ASAP with his or her lawyer from when the defendant got put on pre-trial intervention. Maybe, just maybe, the lawyer can convince the prosecutor to not seek an end to the pre-trial intervention.
