Guest Speaker: Michelle K. Adams, Cabarrus Sentencing Services, along with Susan Brooks, an attorney and administrator for Sentencing Services in Raliegh, discussed how Sentencing Services could assist our clients in some cases by presenting diversion options, which are less expensive for the state to monitor non-violent criminals. Sentencing Services handles client's with substance abuse issues, by getting them treatment, not necessary incarceration.
