Lawyers agree
Answered First, you cannot be “Ordered” into PTD. Diversion is a program which is designed to make you think twice about future criminality by way of making you jump through a series of proverbial hoops during a period of supervision, successful completion of which results in a dismissal. The program is owned and operated by the State Attorney’s Office and they have absolute and unequivocal discretion as to whether to admit you, keep you or “graduate” you from their program.

Second, if you got arrested on a new charge while enrolled in PTD (and most especially for the same offense – not that it matters though) you will 100% guaranteed be bounced-out of PTD and gave to face your initial charge, as well as having to defend you new one. You can also plan on the State (or the Court sua sponte) moving to rescind your initial bond and having you held in custody without a bond until your trial dates.

You are in a bad position my friend. I strongly suggest that you get into a Tampa area experienced criminal defense lawyers office before a lawyer has to go visit you in the Hillsborough County Detention Center. Although I practice primarily in Miami-Dade County you are welcome to contact my office for a referral or two, or you can search either Avvo or the Florida Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers website by locality (please see http://www.facdl.org/– and click on the “Find A Lawyer” tab).

Either way best of luck!
