Drug Court on its way to Fulton County

Rochester Courts are looking at starting up drug court for those ready to get life back on the right track.

Judge Greg Heller in Rochester is surprised that it has taken Fulton County this long to start up a drug court. He says they have been around for a while now around the state of Indiana including in the surrounding counties.



With counties around Fulton County already having drug courts up and running Heller says it was extremely helpful to visit the surrounding drug courts to see what works and what doesn’t.



Drug court is intended to help those who want help, for this reason it is a voluntary course to take to get back on track with this 12 month program. An individual must have pending felony charges, as well as have some department of corrections time on the line to apply.
