Voorhees, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/21/2015 -- Individuals recently arrested for the first time for certain crimes, such as drug possession or related drug charges, may feel as if their fate is sealed. The good news for persons in such a situation is that with the help of an experienced lawyer, some first-time offenders are able to receive conditional discharge or pre-trial intervention in NJ. Charles Block, Attorney at Law, is offering legal services to help clients obtain access to these programs.
New Jersey municipal courts are able to make decisions regarding conditional discharge in NJ only if individuals qualify for the program; this includes only those who have not been previously convicted of a similar offense in NJ or any other state, have not previously received either pretrial intervention or conditional discharge anywhere in the US, and do not pose a threat to their community. The defendant must also agree to take part in specific treatment programs in order to satisfy the conditions of the leniency. With over 30 years' experience practicing law, Charles Block has a proven record of obtaining pre-trial interventions and conditional discharges for eligible clients in NJ.
Rather than receiving a jail sentence, defendants who are granted a conditional discharge are placed on supervised or unsupervised probation, for a period lasting no longer than one-year. Attorney Charles Block may also be able to save the driver's license of a defendant who is granted a conditional discharge. Pre-trial intervention similarly seeks to provide an alternative program for defendants in order to address the roots of their transgression and prevent future criminal behavior through rehabilitation rather than time spent in prison. Attorney Charles Block is committed to ensuring that eligible clients receive the best deal, whether pretrial intervention or conditional discharge, in order for them to return to their normal lives as soon as possible.
