NJ Alternative Sentencing Programs
When an acquittal cannot be obtained, circumstances may allow a client to enter a sentencing program in lieu of jail time. For crimes, the program is called pre-trial intervention and for disorderly persons offenses the program is called conditional discharge. These programs set out certain guidelines (i.e. drug testing) that must be met for a period of time. If all the requirements are satisfied at the end of the time period, the criminal complaint will be dismissed. The New Jersey drug court is also an alternative sentencing program that may be opted for when the offender would not have committed a crime, but for their drug addiction.
