Pre-Trial Intervention

The Pre-Trial Intervention Program, for many first-time theft offenders in Williamson County charged with a Class-A or Class-B misdemeanor, including theft charges, that results in a dismissal of the charge if successfully completed. 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, and have an ignition interlock installed on your vehicle (required only in DWI cases), after which the charge will be dismissed. Then, you may petition the court for a complete 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.
