How Often Does Drug Court Convene?

Court status hearings are held weekly. A report of each defendant's progress is prepared and given to the judge before the hearings. The judge is notified of clean or dirty urinalysis tests, attendance at counseling and educational classes. Any special circumstances concerning the defendant are included in the judge's progress report.

The Court may increase the frequency of urinalysis testing, order increased attendance or participation in a residential program as a requirement to stay in the program, and may order jail time as a sanction. Terminating the defendant from Drug Court of course, is the final sanction. At any time, the defendant can ask to be terminated from the program and be sentenced to serve the original sentence.
