Motion
I have been charged with a crime or crimes, and I was alcohol-dependent or drug-dependent at the time of the crime(s). I ask
the court to suspend my prosecution (put my case on hold) and order me to get treatment for alcohol or drug dependency,
instead of going to trial. If my motion is granted, I understand that:
1. I am not eligible for this program if I am charged with a violation of General Statutes §§ 14-227a, 14-227g, 14-227m,
14-227n, 53a-56b, or 53a-60d or a Class A, B, or C felony, unless the court waives my ineligibility (lets me into the
program anyway).
(Select one.)
I am not charged with any of the crimes listed above.
I am charged with one or more of the crimes listed above, but ask the court to waive my ineligibility.
(If you are charged with a violation of General Statutes §§ 14-227a, 14-227g, 14-227m, 53a-56b or 53a-60d, and you
were operating a commercial motor vehicle or held a commercial driver’s license or commercial driver’s instruction
permit at the time of the offense, the court cannot waive your ineligibility, and you cannot take part in this program.)
2. I am not eligible for this program if the court has ordered me to be treated for alcohol or drug dependency under
General Statutes §§ 17-155y (i), 17a-696, 19a-386, or 21a-284 (revised to 1989) twice before.
(Select one.)

If so, how many times? (Select one.)
1 time
2 times
3. The statute of limitations for my crime(s) will be nolled (put on hold) while I take part in treatment, and I am waiving
(giving up) my right to a speedy trial. This will give the State more time to prosecute me for my crime(s) if I do not
successfully complete the treatment.
4. I must give notice of this motion to any victim(s) of the crime(s) I have been charged with on the Notice to Victim –
Motion for Suspension of Prosecution, form JD-CR-89, and that the court will give the victim(s) a chance to be heard
before it will grant my application.
5. The court can suspend my prosecution for up to 2 years and place me in the custody of the Court Support Services
Division (CSSD) for alcohol or drug treatment. During this time, CSSD may require me to follow any of the conditions of
probation in General Statutes § 53a-30(a) or (b) and may test me for alcohol or drug use without any notice. If I do not
follow any of the conditions that the court or CSSD sets, the court may reinstate (bring back) my case for prosecution.
I understand that, if this motion is granted, I must pay a $25 administration fee and the costs of treatment unless the court
waives this fee.
(Select one.)
I plan to pay the $25 administration fee and costs of treatment;
I plan to file an Affidavit of Indigency - Fee Waiver, Criminal, form JD-AP-48, asking the court to waive the fee and costs; or
I am or I am eligible to be represented by a Public Defender, so the court must waive the fee and costs.
By signing this form, I ask the court to suspend my prosecution and order me to be treated for alcohol or drug dependency.

Second Order of the Court
(If the motion is denied and the file unsealed, consider ordering the defendant’s telephone number redacted.)

The court finds that the defendant was an alcohol- or drug-dependent person at the time of the crime(s) charged, the defendant
presently needs and is likely to benefit from treatment for this dependency, suspension of the prosecution will advance the interests of
justice, the defendant has acknowledged understanding the consequences of the suspension of prosecution, and any victims have
received noticed and an opportunity to be heard. Therefore, the defendant’s motion is granted, the prosecution is suspended and the
case continued to the date below, and the defendant is released to the custody of CSSD for treatment for alcohol or drug dependency
for the Period of Probation listed below, subject to the Conditions of Probation listed below.

of Indigency - Fee Waiver, Criminal, form JD-AP-48, the fee waiver is denied.

Public Defender, or the court finds that the defendant is indigent.
