Harris County Pretrial Intervention Program

July 10, 2019

People who commit misdemeanors or who have no prior criminal record may not deserve the same kind of punishment as felons and career criminals. Rather than sentencing them to long stints in jail and steep fines, judges in Harris County, Texas may allow them to complete a deferred adjudication program. 

One of the most common of these programs is called pretrial intervention. You may be able to take part in a pretrial intervention program by learning what it entails and what benefits it can offer to you as a low-level offender.
