AP XIII, Sec. 9 Transfer of cases between drug courts
A defendant may request a transfer to a drug court program outside of the circuit or district where his or her criminal case is pending, either at the time of referral to the drug court program or after entry into a drug court program. A defendant/participant who has requested and been granted an order transferring venue of his or her case will be allowed to transfer under the following conditions:
(1) The drug court team in the county where the defendant requests to transfer must first agree to accept the defendant.
(2) If accepted, the defendant must complete a Motion for Transfer (AOC Form #55A), which shall be docketed before the circuit or district judge with jurisdiction over the defendant's underlying criminal case.
(3) If the judge grants the defendant's Motion, the judge shall complete AOC Form #DC-55B (Order Transferring), which will transfer venue of the defendant's case for all further criminal proceedings. The defendant's case will be assigned to a circuit or district judge who conducts drug court in the county to which the case has been transferred.
