As a condition of sentencing, the court may require the offender to pay all or a portion of the drug rehabilitation program.

cytotec without prescription This section of the code came in handy in Ventura County recently when I was dealing with a case where a client was charged with H&S 11550(a) and had plead to PC 1000, but failed to complete the program because he checked into an in patient facility in another state for his own best interest.  When I appeared for the client and asked the judge to substitute the in patient program in lieu of all of the imprisonment in county jail that was due because he didn’t complete PC1000 as ordered (under H&S 11550(c)), the judge agreed and saved my client from doing any jail time.
