Our Austin Attorneys Can Protect Your Future
Pretrial Intervention is offered in both Travis and Williamson County, generally for misdemeanor offenses. Pretrial Intervention requires legal representation to be eligible; the attorneys of Sablatura Williams PLLC have had numerous clients take advantage of this program. Contact us so that we may help you obtain your goal of dismissal and expunction of your arrest.
Who is eligible for pretrial intervention?
The beauty of pretrial intervention is that the case is not filed against you provided that you comply with the restrictions set forth by the County Attorney's Office. If you adhere to their restrictions, then the case is eligible for dismissal and expunction. Pretrial intervention is possible for those who have been charged with a non-violent crime for the first time.
Those who do qualify may be offered rehabilitation or other court-supervised programs depending on their case.
To be eligible for Pretrial Intervention, a person must:
- Be at least 18 years old
- Have admitted guilt to their charges
- Not have a prior criminal background
- Be a first-time offender
We Do All We Can to Clear Your Record
Intervention may also include a requirement to pay restitution if such is owed to a victim. To determine if you are eligible for Pretrial Intervention, get in touch with our Austin criminal defense attorneys who can assess your case and help you petition for Intervention. If you complete the program and your criminal record is expunged, you are legally permitted to deny having ever been arrested or convicted of a crime.
Pretrial Intervention typically consists of about six months of probation but has much fewer requirements than normal probation. Some classes and community service may be included as well along with a monthly email check in with a probation officer. As long as the defendant follows through with the requirements in a timely fashion the case will be dropped and the arrest itself can be expunged.
