Alternative Sentencing

Tallahassee Drug Crime Attorney

If you have been charged with a drug crime in Tallahassee, an experienced attorney at our firm may be able to help you obtain an alternative sentence.   Alternative sentencing is a popular option in misdemeanor and first-time drug offender cases.  Instead of serving time in jail for their crimes, a judge will grant an offender permission to attend a 12-month treatment program, where they will not only receive treatment for their drug dependency, but they will also be required to submit to regular drug testing and appear in court  throughout the year so a judge can monitor their progress.  If an individual successfully completes the program, their conviction will be set aside or their charges will be significantly reduced.

Drug Courts

Since the late 1980s, numerous drug courts have been established throughout Florida, offering an alternative to traditional incarceration. It is believed that providing structured substance abuse counseling, aimed at rehabilitating a drug offender, is a more effective form of treatment than incarceration.  The purpose of the alternative sentencing program is to provide drug offenders with the counseling, treatment, education, and resources they need to break their addiction and dependence on drugs, so they are less likely to commit another drug crime in the future.
