The DRTC is a post plea program. Defendants with pending criminal charges may participate in the DRTC pursuant to NCGS 90-96 if they qualify or pursuant to NCGS 15A-1341(a5) conditional discharge if the sentencing judge allows.

After successful completion of all phases, participants will have their probation fees and court cost waived, as well as their probation terminated. Successful completion results in a graduation to honor and celebrate the participant’s accomplishment. Friends and family are encouraged to attend and offer their support.

Note: Restitution costs cannot be waived.
