Judge Taylor visits Rotary

Rotarian David Killian (left) hosted 9th Judicial Circuit Court Judge Jeremy Taylor during the October 26 club meeting. Judge Taylor relayed the challenges presented by criminal drug cases, backlogs in drug forensics and prison overcrowding on our criminal justice system, citing the debilitating changes that methamphetamine use brought to the area. Judge Taylor reiterated the goal of rehabilitation the judicial system promotes, stating that it is better to have a healthy defendant back on the street than a prisoner still dependent on drugs and in need of treatment behind bars.
