Livingston County Treatment Court is a court-ordered condition of probation. Participants must meet criteria before being accepted into Livingston County Treatment Court. Defendants facing felony or misdemeanor charges where drug addiction is a component of their offense may be eligible to participate in a criminal DTC program.
Those who successfully complete their drug treatment court program may have their charges dismissed or reduced, or may receive a reduction in their sentence.
In October 2009, a new law, Criminal Procedure Law, Article 216: Judicial Diversion Program for Certain Felony Offenders, authorizes a court to divert eligible felony offenders into substance abuse treatment programs.
