It is the mission of the Upper Arlington Pilot Drug Court Program to provide management and treatment to misdemeanor defendants who incur offenses directly related to drug addiction in an effort to recognize and correct their problematic behavior as well as reduce the risk they pose to the safety of the community.
The defendants will be afforded the opportunity before the judiciary, supervised treatment, mandatory drug and/or alcohol testing and the use of graduated services and rehabilitative services.
Pilot Drug Court Case Management – Pilot Drug Court will be held on Second and Fourth Wednesdays at 1:00 pm in the Council Chambers. The Upper Arlington Prosecutor, Criminal Justice Administrator or Magistrate may cancel or move Pilot Drug Court to another date at their discretion. If candidates have not been approved for Pilot Drug Court on a specific date, Court shall be cancelled.
Placement in the Pilot Drug Court Docket – This program will serve persons who are non-violent substance-abusing offenders and persons who are non-compliant or in violation of their probation.
In order to have a case placed on the Pilot Drug Court Docket, a defendant must be referred by the Upper Arlington Prosecutor with the approval of the Criminal Justice Administrator and must:
- Meet certain criteria including: having a substance abuse; be competent to stand Trial; understand the requirements of the program; have no history of drug trafficking; and not pose a threat or risk of harm to program staff or the community.
- A candidate must acknowledge having a substance abuse condition that needs treatment.

- A candidate will be required to execute a waiver of having the case appealed to Franklin County Municipal Court for failure to successfully complete the program.
- The Criminal Justice Administrator will provide pre-screening and assessments of eligibility into this program.
