Who Is Eligible for Drug Court?
Drug court is designed for those who, apart from their drug use, are law-abiding citizens. Those who wish to enter into a drug court program must be approved through a clinical assessment and legal screening. The prosecutor must also recommend you for the program, which is why it's so important to retain a New Jersey drug crimes attorney who is an experienced negotiator.
You will not qualify for drug court if you:
- Have a prior conviction for a violent crime
- Are facing charges for a violent crime
- Committed the drug crime for profit, not to satisfy your addiction
- Used juveniles to sell or distribute drugs
