I felt the need to have to clear up some misinformation that was printed lately. Former congressman and Republican nominee for District Lawyer Tom Marino stated he wanted to begin a Mental Well being Court in Lycoming County even so, a single currently exists. Former Judge Gray ran Mental Well being Court and upon his retirement former Judge Lovecchio was to take more than Mental Well being Court but decided it wasn’t in his nor Mental Well being Courts most effective interest to.
As President Judge, Judge Butts knew this therapy court was vital to be continued so she added it to her currently complete court schedule. I was fortunate to perform as Judge Butts assistant in Lycoming County, she is not only the President Judge and Criminal Judge, but she also operates all 4 Lycoming County Remedy Courts which consist of Drug, DUI, Veterans and Mental Well being Court. For these courts to be prosperous, she operates closely with the District Lawyer, probation officers certain to every single Remedy Court and agencies that are certain to the wants of every single Remedy Court. So, you see, Mental Well being Court currently operates in Lycoming County but as most items in life, there can usually be improvements.
