The South Georgia Judicial Circuit and Accountability Court celebrated the graduation of two members of its Drug Court recently.
Reginald James and Felicha Rixie Carver completed the program. The 18-24 month intensive program is designed to help addicts kick the habit and stay out of jail.
Superior Court Judge J. Kevin Chason has spearheaded the program, which is grant funded, and Mary Brown manages the day-to-day operations in consultation with Judge Chason.
Graduates must participate in the program for at least 18 months, pay $30 per month, test negative for any drugs during random testing, meet curfew requirements and attend special training classes.
James and Carver graduates on Sept. 24, 2020.
In addition to graduating from the Drug Court program, James also earned his diploma from Cairo High School during this time.
“We are extra proud of him for this achievement,” says Mrs. Brown.
Carver’s mother, Evelyn Keen, spoke at the Drug Court graduation ceremony speaking about her pride in her daughter for achieving sobriety. Ms. Keen presented her with a special medallion.
“The Judge & the Court Team for very proud of these two participants,” says Mrs. Brown.
