I felt the will need to clear up some misinformation that was printed lately. Former congressman and Republican nominee for District Lawyer Tom Marino stated he wanted to commence a Mental Well being Court in Lycoming County on the other hand, 1 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 very best interest to.

As President Judge, Judge Butts knew this therapy court was crucial to be continued so she added it to her currently complete court schedule. I was fortunate to function 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 Therapy Courts which consist of Drug, DUI, Veterans and Mental Well being Court. For these courts to be productive, she functions closely with the District Lawyer, probation officers precise to each and every Therapy Court and agencies that are precise to the requirements of each and every Therapy Court. So, you see, Mental Well being Court currently operates in Lycoming County but as most issues in life, there can constantly be improvements.
