What in the world People??? No one is Perfect. We have ALL done the wrong things. No one is Perfect in any way. We are all HUMAN. So why all the name calling?? Does it make you feel more privaleged to call someone a Dumb A**? I know the 1st Ammendment states Freedom of speech, but who are we to judge them.. Sheesh, people who can't be alittle more curtious of the choice of words they use, need that ammendment taken away... Stop the Name calling and be a better role model to our Youth.. God Bless those at Kentucky Alternative Program it's them or could have been Jail..

haha umm first of all, i kno trent because he comes into where i work and i wait on him, plus hes a generally nice guy. i dont know ashley really just her name and shes always been nice. so i think its pathetic that u would waste ur time with such a PATHETIC observation.
Exactly how long have you been ordered to test at KAP? Has there been times that you were not court ordered in the last 3 years?
There may be a pattern to your behavior that keeps you dependent on KAP.
Did you ever think that changing your behavior may indeed keep you out of the court system, save money and stay straight enough to get a life beyond peeing in a cup.

Is Kaps even legal? I got a DUI 1, and according to the law I had to do 4 days in jail, fines, and 90 days of treatment. I did my time, paying on fines, and doing the treatment, but KAPS tells me I have to come in for 2 years! Maybe I can just get a lawyer and tell em to stick it?

Get a copy of the court order, make sure you read all the stipulations, If it is not court ordered to do drug testing for 2 years, then KAPS can't make the rules up as they go. You may be ordered drug testing for a period of time, but that time frame should be on the order.

Thanks, I'll do that. But even if the court order says so, How can they order someone above and beyond what the law states is the maximum punishment?

If you feel you were wrongfully sentenced, seek out an attorney or legal aid for assistance in pleading your case. The dockets are full and the 5 min in front of a judge doesn't mean error can't happen. Did you use a mediator as to your case or actually stood before the judge? Have you had prior dealings with the court?
My suggestion is talk with an attorney, advice is free and if you can't afford one to represent you, then seek out conference with Legal Aid, they are there to help you.
The local Legal Aid office is across from the Somerset Utilities/ City Hall.

If you are stupid enough to smoke Spice, by all means go ahead. Have you did the research on Spice? It is a short term high, but you will have health issues from it. Why not just stick your head in a toilet with bleach, it will give you that quick feeling as well.

They can't do a thing except report it to the judge... I wouldn't even go in and waste your time. Just make sure you are clean when you go to court. KAP is simply a money trap...

Kaps is a sure way to get funds, it actually needs shut down and save the funds from salaries. People can go anywhere and pay for a drug screen. KAPS is a program set up to offset cost and keep offenders out of jail. So many times these cases are dragged on for months, costing tax payers as well. Give the person probation, let them present their own drug screens by their own choice of facility. They are paying for the test and should have a legal right to get testing of their choice, which would be out of pocket to them or their insurance company. Nothing says a judge will do anything if they fail a test, most of the time it is just a slap on the wrist of more probabtion time, community service and court appearances to which the tax payer is the ones being held at gun point to pay for all the court expenses with taxes. Cut the apron string of funding these programs. Stop wasting tax payers money.

my boyfriend was issued to do kap, with drug tests, fees, and background reports. he was on probation and got a new violation, which he told them about and they told him not to worry about it, when it was time for his supervised visits to be over they sent him a letter saying that he was being revoked.. it makes me so mad to know that the entire time he was in this, they just wanted money... they could have sent in his violation papers and put a end of it, but they wanted to keep him coming in and taking his money.. i think that this is a joke.. so good luck to anyone who is put on this....
On probation and got another violation. Sounds like a loser to me. All of his problems are on him, not anyone else.

KAPS saves the taxpayers money by providing a service and not having the state hire more probation officers to babysit people and make sure they go to class, pay restitution, stay off drugs, or maintain auto insurance. If the state hhs to hire more workers there are more paychecks being issued and pensions paid out over the long haul. The people have a choice in court to serve jail time...which cost the taxpayers more...or go to KAPS which the probation fees are paid for by the clients. And for all of the perople who complain that KAPS is a money trap...stay out of trouble and obey the law and you won't have to pay any money to KAPS...
