Description

The Fourth Judicial District‟s Property Drug Calendar (PDC), which handles first appearances for defendants charged with felony level property or drug offenses, began February 26, 2007. Prior to implementation of this calendar, property and drug felonies were each handled separately. One of the reasons that the court decided to combine these first appearances was to allow for early detection of defendants who might have chemical dependency issues from both pools of offenders. Professionals working in property court felt that many of the defendants had chemical health issues that were not being addressed under the traditional system. In addition to the changes made to this calendar, the Hennepin County Drug Court went through a major reorganization that is documented in other reports. The key element for this report is that only those defendants deemed chemically dependent and at high risk to reoffend were sent to the new Model Drug Court.
