If you complete the PTI program in S.C., does that mean you

This answer was rated:

If you complete the PTI program in S.C., does that mean you have been convicted of a crime?

Civil Law Answers :

Good morning and thank you for contacting Just Answer.

Civil Law Answers :

No, if you've completed the PTI program in SC, it does not mean you've been convicted of a crime. People who undergo this program have been charged with a non-violent crime, but instead of going to trial (where you could be convicted), you are diverted to this program. If you successfully complete the program, you would likely have the charges against you dismissed and your record would be expunged.

Civil Law Answers :

So, although participation in the program means you were charged with a crime, it does not mean you were convicted.

Civil Law Answers :

I hope this answer was helpful to you.
