(Richmond, IN)--Wayne County last week had its first person successfully complete a drug diversion program. Prosecutor Mike Shipman has made that announcement on his department’s Facebook page. That program allows people who have been charged with lower-level drug and paraphernalia possession crimes to have those charges dismissed if they complete a drug diversion program. Still, Shipman said that 2/3 of the people who enter the program fail to comply, even though they know that a failure will result in them going to jail or prison.
Mike Shipman joined Phil Quinn on 101.7 The Point for an extended conversation Monday Morning.
