Drug Court

Some non-violent offenders with a serious substance abuse problem are referred to Wayne County's Adult Drug Court. Drug Court is a specially designed probationary sentence under which the defendant works with a Drug Court Judge and Case Manager to overcome addiction and criminal behaviors associated with addiction. Judge Lawrence S. Talon is the current leader of the Drug Court Team - a collaborative committee made up of the various shareholders in the criminal justice system, including judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, area treatment providers, and probation officers.

Prosecutor Worthy is a strong supporter of the Drug Court; current team members from her staff include William Heaphy and Kal Najar from the Screening Division and Daryl Carson of the Trial Division.
