    Answered . I am an attorney licensed to practice law in both New York and New Jersey. PTI is short for Pre-Trial Intervention. Pre-Trial Intervention is available to residents of other states besides New Jersey.
    PTI allows a person charged with a crime to enter into a diversion program with out pleading guilty and getting a criminal record. There are usually several conditions of PTI. In all matters that PTI is granted the person must stay out of trouble for a period of time.
