What to Expect

When released, clients will schedule an intake appointment to meet with a Pretrial Case Manager. During the intake, the case manager will gather needed information and help determine the best plan for pretrial success. Information gathered may include but is not limited to the following: education/employment history, mental health history, substance use history, etc. The case manager will also review any release requirements the client may have been given upon release.

Throughout supervision clients will attend appointments with their case manager and may also be assigned to attend and complete classes. Other requirements such as urinalysis testing may also be ordered by the Judge.
