Finn Sullivan, 17, was arrested during his last year for selling prescription drugs at his high school in Seattle’s Central District.
He was put into King County Drug Court, a system that provides eligible defendants the chance to go into drug treatment rather than serving time. The program is more than twenty years old and has been celebrated as a national success story.
After his arrest, Sullivan went to an in-treatment rehabilitation program in Florida for a month to work on his recovery. Since completing his treatment, he’s been sober for six months.
