Notes and Forms Article by Paul J. Notarianni

ABSTRACT:  In a criminal matter, a sentencing judge has the power to order a defendant into the custody of the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene to receive substance abuse treatment, rather than continued incarceration.  This power is based off of Maryland Health General Article Sections 8-505; 8-506; and 8-507.  This article is an overview of those sections, sample forms, and suggested solutions to issues a litigator may potentially face.
