The Alternative Sentencing Program allows those in our care the opportunity to maintain their employment, education, and/or treatment. This program is carefully supervised and includes monetary fees, which shall be determined by a case assessment.
Only individuals who have been referred by the court should fill out the Alternative Sentencing Program application. Applications cannot be completed more than one week prior to the defendant’s remand date.
