I always had a feeling that parts of New Jersey were just cesspools but the overt war on women that some people within the state are waging is just downright disgusting.
Firstly, you have Ray Rice, who beat his wife unconscious in an elevator, dragged her out and left her head in the doorway in the tracks of the closing elevator doors as she laid there unmoving.
How did Atlantic County prosecutor Jim McClain decide to proceed with this brutal case of spousal abuse? Why, he entered Ray Rice into a pre-trial intervention program (PTI) for first time offenders and Superior Court Judge Michael Donio signed off on it, thereby sparing Rice from jail time.
What are some of the benefits to the PTI program?
- If PTI is successfully completed, there is no record of conviction and the defendant avoids the stigma of a criminal record.
- Early intervention allows rehabilitative services to be provided soon after the alleged offense, in an attempt to correct the behavior that led to the offense.
