You’ve got so many questions. We’ll give you answers.


Q: Does Pasco County have a criminal diversion program?

A: Yes, the Pasco Pretrial Intervention Program (PTI) is available to first time offenders for many but not all criminal charges.  The Office of the State Attorney is the only party involved that can offer the program and completion of the program is at the Office of the State Attorney’s sole discretion.  Only the State Attorney can place you in the program and only the State Attorney can remove you from the program.  

If you would like to apply for the program you can contact our office to make sure the program is right for your situation or you can request an application from the State Attorney’s Office.  Since you can only enter this program once it would be wise to determine if the allegations are legitimate or warranted.  Only a licensed Florida attorney can help you determine if legally the allegations would stick.  Call your Pasco criminal defense attorneys with the Rooth Law Group today for your free consultation.  (727) 797-9600 in Pinellas County, (813) 333-6517 in Hillsborough County.
