2. Court Approval of Defendant's Participation in Conditional Dismissal Program. After considering the eligibility criteria set forth in section 1 of P.L.2013, c.158 (C.2C:43-13.1), the defendant's criminal history and the municipal prosecutor's recommendation, the court may, without entering a judgment of conviction, and after proper reference to the State Bureau of Identification criminal history record information files, approve the defendant's participation in the conditional dismissal program established pursuant to P.L.2013, c.158 (C.2C:43-13.1 et al.) and place the defendant under a probation monitoring status for a period of one year. The court may also impose financial obligations and other terms and conditions in accordance with P.L.2013, c.158 (C.2C:43-13.1 et al.). Where the court approves a defendant's participation in the conditional dismissal program over the municipal prosecutor's objection, the order approving the defendant's participation in the program shall be a final order but upon request of the municipal prosecutor shall be stayed for a period of 10 days in order to permit the prosecutor to appeal such order to the Superior Court.
