Drug Court Eligibility

Posted by John Rutkowski | Mar 29, 2019 | 0 Comments

Drug Court Program

Criminal law -- Circuit court departed from essential requirements of law when it determined that defendant was ineligible for circuit's treatment-based drug court program based on circuit's administrative order which precluded defendant from admission into drug court program on more than one occasion, despite fact that defendant was otherwise eligible. Provision of circuit's administrative order limiting defendant to only one opportunity to have case heard in drug court clearly contravened enabling statute by adding terms and conditions that were not part of original legislation. Administrative order quashed to extent that it conflicts with state statute. Remand for further proceedings.
