i think alot of the drugcourt program that is in chesterfield county. i know many participants in the program and have seen them turn into good people with the help of drug court councelers.
although there are five participants who are making a mockery and a joke of drugcourt program and the peoples tax dollars!
drug court participants have a no association rule that these individuals repeatedly violate (and have been caught by deputies) and the drugcourt does nothing but give them a slap on the hand! they even leave drugcourt class together. there is also a curfew and bed check rule that drugcourt does not back up and follow thru with. these are also individuals that have been repeatedly sanctioned and each time they were told this was it no more chances! these individuals have been seen repeatedly together in the community by countless people in the community and even checking into motels together, being allowed to live together, having parties and inviting other drug court participants. they are also supposed to go to church on sundays and AA meetings, these individuals have family members who are in the churches that are signing bulletines for them and not going to church. they also are having AA and NA members sign thier papers for them without names on top of the papers and they are distributing them to other participants so they do not have to go to meetings, 2 of them have started gambling and have been seen at a local poker house. these 5 have been caught violating these rules repeatedly. two of the five individuals, a male and female have repeatedly harrassed their ex's to the point of following them around to church and other area businesses harrassing them, calling making threats (a police officer was witness to a call that was made while she was making a police report) going past their house at all times of the night (that same house was broke into) and she is literally scared of the male and female.
they are using, abusing and making a joke out of the program. and have made statements that they got drugcourt under control and they run the show. they are influencing other participants in the program who are seeing these 5 get away with breaking the rules over and over to do the same. if theses people cannot follow rules in the program that are put in place to reprogram their thinking and create structure in their lives, how can you think they will make it thru 18 months and get back out into society and follow everyday rules in life and laws. these are tax dollars and state funds that are being abused.

i know all to well about how the solicitors office just lets certain people get away with anything and sends them into "drugcourt" for 18 months and think they can be reformed. right! there has been a participant and his girlfriend (im sure everyone in the patrick area knows her as KERI HILL) that is also in drugcourt living together (and they are in violation of an association rule) in the program that has been allowed to harrass me on a daily basis and the counselers do nothing about it even though they have been told all information and givin copies of all the police reports. your right we need a change. they have their own circle and its all in who you know and how much money you have.

I know what you mean, I can go and they hammer me the whole time I'm there. It seems the more you say to them, the more they let these guys do.

i personally think that people like kerri hill thats wanted for shop lifting ,insurance fraud, and things like that are making a mockery of the drug courts and i am so mad that my tax money goes to help them when they dont want help theirselves if they dont want help i dont think you should give it to them my tax money could be going to things like lowering the county debt i think the people that run the drug courts should look deeper in than they do

As the Drug Court Attorney and Deputy Solicitor for Chesterfield County, I take these allegations seriously, and this morning was the first time I've ever heard of these allegations. If anyone has first-hand information that anything illegal or in violation of court rules is taking place, please call me. I'd like to meet with you. Also, please keep in mind that federal law applies and that neither I nor any of you are allowed to disclose to the public the name(s) of someone in Drug Treatment Court; the US Attorney possibly could prosecute you in federal court. However, if you have information that you wish to discuss with me about a specific person, we can do that confidentially. Please call the Solicitor's Office in Cheraw to schedule a meeting with me. Thank you. Mary T. Johnson-Lee

I think Drug Court around here is a joke. I have been here no longer than 3 months and i have seen how the drug court in chesterfield works. they let people there do as they like. Something has to be done more to them than a smack on the wrist.
3 Strikes and they still let them run free and not go by the rules.
GET CONTROL OF YOUR PROGRAM!!

drug court has been advised of all allegations and names by quite a few people in the community and participants of the program. these select few laugh about getting away with violating rules in front of other participants and behind the counselers backs! i know quite a few of the participants that are doing really well in the program and its having a possitive impact on some of them. these few will corrupt them if they remain in the program and aloud to manipulate the program!

I agree with concerned taxpayer. there are some people in this program doing exactly what they are suppose to. but the ones they mentioned are making a joke of it.

I really appreciate that you have tried to bring it to someone's attention. However, this is ultimately a Solicitor-run program, and if the Solicitor does not know what is going on, nothing can be done on our part to address any issues. I beg you: please call or come by the Cheraw office to discuss this with me as the Drug Court attorney. I can't do anything until you do. Again, your name WILL be confidential; you have my word as an officer of the court that I will not disclose your identity to ANYONE.
