   New Act                                                                     

        Creates the Drug Court Treatment Act. Permits the chief judge  of      
   each judicial circuit to establish a drug court program. Provides that      
   the  prosecutor  and the defendant may agree that the defendant may be      
   admitted to the program with  the  approval  of  the  court.  Contains      
   provisions  concerning  eligibility  for  the  program,  assessment of      
   defendants, and operation of the program.  Provides that the   program      
   shall  include  a  regimen  of  graduated requirements and rewards and      
   sanctions,  including  but  not  limited  to:  fines,   fees,   costs,      
   restitution,   incarceration,   individual  and  group  therapy,  drug      
   analysis testing, close monitoring  for  a  minimum  of  30  days  and      
   supervision  of  progress,  educational  or  vocational  counseling as      
   appropriate, and other requirements  necessary  to  fulfill  the  drug      
   court  program.  Sets  forth  dispositional options for defendants who      
   successfully complete the program and those who fail to do so.              
        SENATE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                
        Provides that the chief judge may determine the manner in which a      
   defendant is admitted into a drug court program.  Eliminates provision      
   requiring the prosecutor to agree to the defendant's admission into  a      
   drug  court  program.   Also  eliminates provision that the prosecutor      
   must agree that the defendant is addicted to or of using drugs  before      
   the court orders an assessment of the defendant. Adds a definition of       
   "drug court professional" to the Act. Provides that a defendant shall       
   be excluded from a drug court program if the defendant has previously       
   completed or has been discharged from a drug court program. Provides        
   that a defendant admitted into a drug court program may be incarcer-        
   ated up to 180 days. Provides that the close monitoring of the              
   defendant may be by the court at a minimum of once every 30 days.
