A: Although PTI is fairly standard statewide, it is governed by local practices and the original written agreement. The agreement usually has a specific timeframe but may allow for early termination of the PTI if all of the conditions are completed. The entity that is charged with supervising the PTI will have to verify all conditions are complete by the receipt of documentation that supports it. Once that is received, many jurisdictions will forward those finding to the State Atorney's office for instructions about whether the PTI can be terminated.

If you had counsel on ethe case in question you should consult with your attorney for specific information as it relates to your case. Make sure that you have consulted your original signed contract for guidance.
