Avoid a Conviction
For individuals facing criminal charges, there are different programs available in Connecticut that can help you avoid a conviction and permanent criminal record. Some of these programs available in Connecticut include:
- Alcohol Education Program — can enable you to avoid conviction on a DUI charge.
- Accelerated Pretrial Rehabilitation — postpones a final judgment for a period of six months to two years, after which the charge is dismissed. Often used in cases involving first-time shoplifting and theft offenses.
- Drug Education Program – First and Second-time drug cases – you can avoid a conviction provided that you complete a drug education course and community service.
- Other programs — include the Family Violence Education Program and Violence Education Program.
Eligibility for these programs vary and your participation is determined by the cooperation of the prosecutor and approval of the court. Our law firm has many good working relationships with prosecutors and has helped many people use these programs to avoid conviction.
