Drug Court Legal Aspects

To enter the program a person must admit guilt (guilty plea). Performance, compliance and sobriety determine how long a person is in the program. Everyone must have abstinence for 1 year. The drug court incorporates a system of sanctions for non-compliance and incentives for compliance.

Failure to abide by the drug court requirements results in termination from the program. Upon termination, a finding is made and the person is sentenced.
