Sandusky County Juvenile Court to get state funds

FREMONT The Sandusky County Juvenile Court will receive $389,515 in state grant funds during fiscal year 2009, court officials announced recently.

Michelle Gill, a juvenile court administrative assistant, said the funds will be used in the court s youth works department and Genesis program, which serve youth ages 11 to 17 who are considered high risk for re-offending.

Program organizers help these at-risk teens and adolescents with their homework after school and offer counseling for criminal thinking, sex education, and decision making skills, among other services.

Some grant funds will contribute to the salaries of court probation officers and cover admission cost for behavioral rehabilitation centers, Ms. Gill said.

Juvenile Court Judge Brad Culbert said some programs would not be possible without state grant funding.

State funding is critical in maintaining a creative and effective juvenile justice system, he said in a press release.

Sandusky County Juvenile Court has received more than $4 million in state grant funds since 1995.
