18 graduate from youth drug court program

Posted: Jun 11, 2018 1:26 PM Updated:

Graduation season is in full swing. And while there are no caps or gowns in the Silver Dollar Graduation Ceremony, there's plenty to celebrate.

18 youths recently completed the requirements to graduate from the Juvenile Drug Court Program.

Each participant had been charged with a substance-use related offense. Upon completion of the program, those cases are not only dismissed, but wiped clean from their records.

The program was established back in 2002 in response to the growing number of adolescent substance abuse cases.

Chief Justice Katherine A. Maraman told graduates "The Court and the community have invested a lot of time and effort to help you overcome...feel good about your futures and celebrate this achievement."
