Carol Merritt,  Director

The Pre-trial Intervention program was started here in Colbert county in 2008.  The purpose of this program is to provide first time offenders and those with minor criminal offenses an opportunity to pay their fines and restitution and have their case dismissed.  Offenders may be required to participate in any number of programs, from drug treatment and testing, to obtaining their GED (if applicable) and employment.  Offenders are required to maintain any previously court ordered payments, such as child support, while in the program.  If you have any questions about this program, please feel free to contact Mrs. Merritt.
