A: Probation and sometimes special probation may be offered in certain cases. You can appeal your drug court rejection within 14 days. You should review your rejection with an attorney to see if you were legally or clinically rejected. As to the terms of your plea bargain, that depends on a number of factors, including the charges, the strength of the case, and your prior record, if any.
