State v. Terrell M. Lucas, unpublished opinion, App. Div. Docket No. A-5620-07T4 (May 28, 2010) – Conviction reversed, case remanded. “The central issue in this appeal is whether defendant has the right to apply to [PTI], not whether he would have been admitted to PTI…. At the plea proceeding, the parties focused on whether defendant would have been admitted into PTI, not whether he had the right to apply…. [T]he Criminal Division Manager must allow a defendant to submit an application to PTI and must evaluate the application. Moreover, the PTI Guidelines provide that all defendants must be permitted to apply…. Defendant was mistakenly deprived of the opportunity to apply for PTI. We reverse and remand to permit defendant to submit his PTI application for consideration.”
