SD Chief Justice Says Courts Working On Reform Law

SD Chief Justice Says Courts Working On Reform Law
PIERRE, SD -

South Dakota Supreme Court Chief Justice David Gilbertson says the state court system is making progress in carrying out its role in an extensive overhaul of the state's criminal justice system.

In his annual State of the Judiciary speech to the South Dakota Legislature, Gilbertson on Wednesday said the court system is expanding courts for offenders with drug and alcohol systems.

It also is starting new pilot programs for a different kind of probation for drug offenders and a new program for helping military veterans charged with misdemeanors.

The court system also is making big changes in the way it handles offenders placed on probation.

The overhaul passed last year aims to handle more offenders through intervention and community programs instead of putting them in prison.
