In New York, under CPL § 410.91 and Penal Law § 70.06(7), the court may order a sentence which consists of participation in an intensive drug treatment program at a drug treatment camp for a period of 90 days. Once the the 90 day treatment program is completed, the defendant will remain under parole supervision for the balance of the sentence. 

This particular provision only applies to specific offenses which include some Class D or Class E felony offenses. In particular, an offender will most likely be eligible where the crime was drug related.

As always, Please be advised, this is not legal advice. For a free consultation, contact a Criminal Lawyer Buffalo NY or divorce lawyer buffalo ny today.
