Juvenile Drug Court in Alabama "Promising"
From the Daily Home OnLine:
ST. CLAIR COUNTY, AL — Slightly over one month old, the St. Clair County Juvenile Drug Court is very promising.
“We have seen it work in our adult drug court,” said St. Clair County District Court Judge Phil Seay, who oversees both the adult drug court and the juvenile drug court. “We decided to try out a juvenile drug court.”
Seay said the juvenile drug court is similar to the adult drug court.
“The only way to get in to juvenile drug court is through a juvenile court case,” he said.
Seay said cases include crimes such as theft, truancy, or the parent may file a CHINS (child in need of supervision).
