| Feb 15, 2017 | Drug Charges

If you are facing drug charges in Arkansas, you might be surprised to find that there are sometimes options for how the case is resolved. One of these options is the Drug Court program. This program is meant for people who have a drug addiction and were charged with a crime. There are several different criteria for entering into the drug court program. One of the most notable is that you can’t be considered a violent offender based on current or former charges.

We know that you might have questions about the program. We can help you to learn about eligibility requirements, as well as how you can participate in this program if it is something that interests you.

Drug Court’s main goal is to help people who are addicted to drugs to overcome that addiction by using the program’s requirements to get on the right path. You will be subjected to random drug tests and will have to work your way through the program as expected.

If you fail to follow the program, you can face time in jail or even the possibility of your case being remanded back to the regular criminal justice system’s prosecutions. We understand that you have a lot to think about so that you can decide if this is a good option for you.

No matter what type of drug charges you are facing, even if you have elements in your case or history that preclude you from Drug Court, you still have the right to a defense. We can help you learn what options you have for your case so that you can start working on your defense.
