Honorable Jay B. Roof

Keynote Speaker

"Resilience means keep getting back up. These graduates have learned to recover from setbacks and have learned from their mistakes."


Dorinda T., Alumni Speaker

"I began to use just a little at first but was soon out of control. I wasted 10 years of my life.  I was lost for a long time and hurt my family."

We acknowledge the hard work and of these participants who have successfully completed the Drug Court program.

Jesse S., Graduate

"When I entered Drug Court, I weighed 100lbs and was lost. I never thought I would become the man I am right now. I will never go back to that man that I was... I never want to see the hurt look on my mother's face again."

Lindsey B., Graduate

"Thank you to the Drug Court team, my family and my fiancée. It was a long road, but I did it. "

Joseph J., Graduate
“I had a rough start in the program, and I finally realized that I don't fit in jail. Thank you for the support of my family, friends and the Drug Court team."


Joe R., Graduate

“When I entered Drug Court, I trusted no one, and I was a loner. I'm alive today because of the people in Drug Court. I'm willing to keep going...I have a family now. To the newcomers: do it because life is worth living."

Aimee K., Graduate
"Thank you to my family and to Drug Court. It hasn't been easy, but well worth it."

 Kristie K., Graduate
"Thank you everybody."

Jeffrey N., Graduate
"Thank you to Judge Roof and the Drug Court team. I came into Drug Court fresh out of ideas. I needed accountability and structure. I couldn't have done it without my Dad and my best friend."

Shain C., Graduate
"My life before Drug Court was a complete disaster. I hurt a lot of friends and family and broke lots of trust."

Drug Court Graduates and Judge Jay B. Roof 

“Drug Court is not the easy way out, we are not coddling criminals. Drug Court is a very demanding and challenging process. We are dedicated to breaking the cycle within their families.”
