The Williamson County Attorney has a special six-month program, called the Pre-Trial Intervention Program, for many first-time offenders charged with a Class-A or Class-B misdemeanor, including Class-A assault, that results in a dismissal of the charge. However, in order to be eligible for this program, you must apply through your attorney within a specific period of time. If accepted, you must pay a $360 fee, perform 40 hours of community service, take some classes, submit to drug testing, after which the charge will be dismissed. Then, you may petition the court for a compete expunction of the charge when the law permits you to do so. An expunction is a process whereby an arrest and charge are completely removed from your criminal history and all related records are ordered destroyed.
