Mendham NJ Marijuana Distribution Charges Led to Admission into the PTI Program

Morris County NJ Superior Court

Morris County NJ Superior Court

Recently, Travis J. Tormey represented a client charged with second degree distribution of marijuana. Thanks to Mr. Tormey’s efforts, Mendham NJ marijuana distribution charges led to admission into the PTI Program. Because of the seriousness of the charge, Mr. Tormey’s client was facing as many as ten (10) years in NJ State Prison. Additionally, the potential sentence carried a presumption of incarceration, meaning that the minimum period of incarceration would have been five (5) years.

The facts of the case were fairly straightforward: Mr. Tormey’s client was a graduate student in Philadelphia with no prior criminal record. He had been stopped in his motor vehicle while pulling out of the driveway of his girlfriend’s parents’ house in Mendham NJ. The arresting officer allegedly smelled marijuana coming from the vehicle and asked for consent to search the car. The search revealed approximately 6.5 ounces of marijuana and turned up just over $300.00 in cash.

Typically, the facts of this case would have led prosecutors to file third degree drug distribution charges. However, because the incident occurred within 500 feet of a public park, it was elevated to a second degree crime. Nonetheless, Mr. Tormey was able to convincingly argue that his client was not a drug dealer and that the marijuana was for his client’s personal use. Mr. Tormey provided transcripts from his clients Master’s program as well as multiple letters of recommendation vouching for his client’s character and prior conduct in school.

As a result, the prosecutor agreed to allow Mr. Tormey’s client to be admitted into the Pre-Trial Intervention (PTI) program for a period of two (2) years. Now, as long as Mr. Tormey’s client is able to stay out of trouble during this period and complies with the other conditions of the diversionary program, the criminal charges will be dismissed. In the end, thanks to Mr. Tormey, Mr. Tormey’s client will have no criminal record from this incident.
