A drug defendant has been approved to be screened for possible acceptance into the Huron County Common Pleas Court intervention program.

If Kevin M. Mock, 34, of 4450 Hartland Center Road, Collins, completes an approved substance abuse program, he won't have a conviction on his record. He is charged with possession of amphetamine in connection with an April 19 incident.

Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Richard Woodruff said Mock's record means he appears to be an appropriate candidate for intervention in lieu of conviction.

"He just needs to be evaluated," Woodruff added.

I'm glad he's not being charged as an adult. 12 yr. olds need treatment not prison sentences.

Mixed emotions here! It's great if he avoids a conviction,but he should be required to have a full time job for minimum of 24 consecutive months. Treatment is great, but he needs a job to be a productive citizen within the community.
