    The 25-year-old New York City resident appeared Monday in New Jersey Superior Court in Toms River.

    Judge Stephanie Wauters told Ortiz-Magro that he'd be in the program for 18 months and asked if he'd be willing to do community service during that time.

    Ortiz-Magro was charged after a September 2009 fight outside a Seaside Heights nightclub.
