Montgomery County families report that their young people are being pressured into deferred adjudication and a drug treatment program only to find it enormously expensive—and then the families have to pay and pay. And listen to these requirements: “Participant agrees to submit his person, property, place of residence, vehicle, personal effects, to search at anytime, with or without a search warrant, warrant of arrest by any probation officer or law enforcement officer.” And “Participant agrees to waive a record on all progress hearings.” So this is the way our justice system works?
