Drug Court is for people charged with non-violent felonies whose drug addiction or dependency was a factor in the commission of their crimes. Participants must admit to the truth of all the evidence against them, in exchange for a two-year pre-trial treatment program. The treatment includes many restrictions on participants' daily activities, certified drug treatment and weekly drug testing, and close monitoring by a Drug Court judge.
A successful participant could get the charges against him or her dismissed at the conclusion of the program.
Failure to meet the program goals will result in termination, and automatic conviction and sentence to jail on the original charges.
