Kanawha County Sheriff's Office Graduates Drug Court

The Kanawha County Drug Court held its graduation Thursday afternoon in the Old County Courthouse and Judge Jennifer Bailey was part of the event. Since taking their first Drug Court Client in July 2009, the Kanawha County Sheriff's office says the Drug Court has graduated thirty-eight clients, and the graduates have a relapse into criminal behavior just 13.16% of the time, far below the National Average. And the sheriff's office adds they've had five drug-free babies born since they started taking Drug Court clients, and they've saved over $2 million in jail costs.
