‘Jersey Shore’ star makes appeal

A lawyer for “Jersey Shore” cast member Ronnie Ortiz-Magro has told a judge his client will apply to a pretrial intervention program in an assault case, Associated Press reports.

Pretrial intervention allows a defendant to avoid a criminal record if he stays out of trouble.

The 25-year-old reality-show star from New York City was charged after a September 2009 fight in which he knocked another man unconscious outside a Seaside Heights, N.J., nightclub. The fight was shown during the MTV show’s first season.

Assistant Ocean County prosecutor Hillary Bryce said Monday the application frees Mr. Ortiz-Magro to travel to Italy next month for taping of the show’s next season.

Miss Bryce tells the Asbury Park Press that Mr. Ortiz-Magro will be required to appear in state Superior Court in June to learn if he has been accepted into the program.
