After your arrest you were given a choice between joining SITC and having your case go through the regular court process. If you abuse drugs and are eligible for the SITC program, your Case Manager will work with you to build a treatment plan. While you are in treatment, the Judge will closely watch your progress.

If the Judge says you can no longer participate or you ask to stop participating, the Judge will sentence you to the jail time you and your lawyer agreed to when you pled guilty.
