Drug crime options posed



November 24, 2010 - 12:00 AM

Drug crimes may be handled differently in the future, District Judge Daniel Creitz told Allen County commissioners Tuesday morning.

Instead of slapping perpetrators in jail, an intensive form of probation with emphasis on treatment may be more productive, Creitz said, noting a recent feasibility study funded by a $16,641 grant from the Health Care Foundation of Greater Kansas City.

County Counselor Alan Weber said such  drug courts have proven successful across the nation and result in fewer repeat offenders.
