An alternative to incarceration for certain criminal defendants will be explained in length during a panel discussion by Door County officials on March 13. The virtual event will include a perspective from law enforcement about the role and value of the Door County Treatment Court. The panel discussion will include Door County Circuit Court Judge David Weber, District Attorney Colleen Nordin, Sheriff Tammy Sternard, and Court Services and Treatment Court Coordinator Kelsey Christensen. Door County has recently begun accepting defendants into its newly-established treatment court. Pat Scieszinski of the League of Women Voters of Door County, who is co-sponsoring the event with the Door County Library, says the treatment court was three years in the making and will be held virtually now with hopes for another panel in the fall that will be in person.
The virtual Door County Treatment Court panel discussion will be at 10 am on Saturday, March 10. A link for the online discussion is available on the Calendar section of the Door County Library website.
