Drug Court

On Friday 16 November 2012, the Queensland Government released the amendments to the Drug Court Regulations which effectively stop any further referrals to the Drug Court.

If you have enquiries from clients, their families or other solicitors about the possibility of going to the Drug Court, this sentencing option now no longer exists.

The Drug Court will still operate for the next few months, but it will operate only to enable the current participants to continue treatment and be transitioned from the court to alternative sentencing options eventually, and deal with any participants on drug court warrants who surrender or are arrested.

If you have any questions please call the Legal Aid Queensland Drug Court team on 3238 3496.
