(Richmond, IN)--The Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office has released some results of its Pre-Trial Drug Diversion Program.  That program allows addicts to have some criminal charges against dropped if they become clean.  About 2/3 of people in the program are removed for non-compliance.  Those that failed either failed drug testing, failed to attend counseling, or did not show up for probation hearings.  Wayne County Prosecutor Mike Shipman explained in social media Thursday that people who possess needles are not subject to arrest if they obtained those needles through an exchange program, but they’re supposed to carry documentation that can be shown to police.  25 people are currently taking part in the drug dirversion program.
