Where can I find a Pretrial Diversion Program regarding alcohol in or near Union Co NJ for an illegal consumption ticket?

Asked over 1 year ago - Westfield, NJ

My son was given a ticket while visiting Indiana University for illegal consumption (he was not in a vehicle). He is 18 and we live in NJ so he can't attend the Pretrial Diversion Program in IN as he was told to do by the IN court. He is allowed to take a similar program in NJ, but we can't find one. He is leaving for college in Aug. and must take the class before then.

    Answered . NJ has approved programs. But it is Indiana that has the say so. I would research the list of approved programs and have they OKed by Indiana. I do not know if all this plus the program can be done in 2 months.

    Answered . Look at the New Jersey Dept. of Human Services, Division of Addiction Services at http://www.state.nj.us/humanservices/das/home/i.... Look at the Treatment Provider Directory. Call one of the facilities and make arrangements for outpatient treatment after making sure Indiana will accept it.

    Answered . This is something you're going to want to hire a local defense attorney in New Jersey to help you with. That'd be the easiest way of making this happen.
