Jasmine Lafferty - UC
WV is made up of a lot of smaller rural communities, while drug court covers most counties in the state do you find location is a barrier to drug court participates, especially during the pandemic?
Clinton Liang
How are participants found eligible to be participant in drug court? Is it based on a recent arrest where drugs/alcohol were the main arrest reason? If so, with a record of a drug arrest does the drug court program also help rehabilitate the person into society such as finding a job with an arrest record?
Lauren Hines
I will try to find a good time to ask the questions you have! :)
