2003 Senate Bill 123

K.S.A. 21-6824 (2003 SB 123) was created during the 2003 legislative session. Under community corrections supervision, SB 123 provides certified substance abuse treatment for offenders convicted of K.S.A 21-5706 (drug possession), who are nonviolent adult offenders with no prior convictions of drug trafficking, drug manufacturing or drug possession with intent to sell. The Kansas Sentencing Commission provides administration, monitoring, evaluation, payment services, publications, and informational meetings for the SB 123 program.

GOAL:

To provide community intervention and the opportunity for treatment to certain offenders with substance abuse problems in order to address more effectively prison recidivism of substance abusers in the state prison system, which should be reserved for serious, violent offenders.
