PTI program

Asked about 1 year ago - Clearwater, FL

I applied for the PTI program back in the beginning of April and told that I would be getting a call to see if I was accepted or not. When I sign the PTI contract who do I go to, the PTI counselor or my former lawyer?

    Answered . PTI programs are set up & organized by the State Attorney's office in each County/Circuit and are generally supervised by Probation. I'll defer to my colleagues who reside & practice in Pinellas to give you the specifics, but I expect that you'll receive a notice directing you to come to the probation office or perhaps the State to sign off on your agreement. Thereafter, you'll meet with a supervising PO to monitor your progress & compliance with the program.

    Answered . It sometimes takes a while for the state to call you. Have your lawyer check with the prosecutor to make sure they haven't chanted their mind like Orange County does where I practice. Good luck
