Defendant given a chance with drug court

Many people in New Jersey who find themselves arrested for and charged with crimes involving drugs know that the root cause of their situation is a serious addiction to drugs. Successfully treating and overcoming drug addiction is no easy feat and sadly the problem can and does lead some into a downward spiral if they are not given the help they need when they need it.

A man who is 35 years old and from Jersey City has recently been given the opportunity to get some help for his drug problem. The man has a history of issues with drugs as well as criminal offenses and in fact has been convicted of 18 different offenses over the years. On one occasion before he had the ability to complete the drug court probation program and made noticable improvements in his life. However, since then he was not able to remain connected to his treatment and support community and once again found himself in a confrontation with the law.

Instead of a prison term that could have lasted four years, a judge granted him the option to once again go through the drug court. This will give the man access to treatment to help him with his addiction and give him the chance to put his life back together. 

When faced with a serious criminal charge impacted by addiction, New Jersey residents may find it benficial to work with an attorney to learn how to get the help and accountability they need.
