Options In Drug Court

Some counties in Pennsylvania have alternative sentencing arrangements for those charged with drug possession. These drug courts are intended to help individuals deal with their substance abuse problem in lieu of incarceration. If accepted into the Drug Court Program, there are very strict guidelines that must be followed, including court-mandated treatment and/or counseling. If the offender does not meet the requirements for the duration of the program, criminal sentencing may be imposed.

Drug court is only an option for first-time offenders and those without a prior criminal record. If you have been charged with drug possession and are dealing with an addiction, the lawyers at Donatoni & Crichton can help you explore your eligibility and options in drug court.
