My lawyer told me I’m eligible for PTI but hasn’t told me to apply yet. Everyone is saying I should apply 28 days after getting arrested.
Your attorney has the information. The time begins to run at indictment not arrest but many counties have their own rules. It is a prosecutor's program.
Listen to your lawyer. Don't worry about what everyone tells you on the street or inside a jail. Rule of thumb is that your lawyer knows best so do what he says. I don't get ppl who pay a lot of money to an atty and then go around listening to stranger's advice.
Listen to your attorney he knows the facts of your case and the county that you're in for the rules that apply to you. Sometimes it's a strategy not to apply for PTI
