Starting a couple of years ago, Henry County State Court has implemented a DUI court program in which a repeat DUI offender who lives in Henry County is eligible. DUI court is a bit of a misnomer. Everyone does go to “court” on their DUI case. The Henry County “DUI Court” program is a treatment program that offenders are sentenced to as part of their probation. The program is approximately one year in length and requires nearly weekly appearances before the Judge as well as frequent counseling sessions for alcohol and drug related problems. DUI Court is not a good fit for everyone. You cannot live in a house with people who have alcohol in the refrigerator. This means that if you live with roommates or other family members, no one can have alcohol in the house.
