Standing Room Only Crowd Celebrates GCC Drug Court Win

Written by GCC

A standing room only crowd filled St. Mark’s Presbyterian Church in Cleveland to celebrate Greater Cleveland Congregation’s most recent criminal justice win.

In attendance were Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Michael O’Malley and County Administrative Judge John Russo as GCC announced the addition of a new drug court with criteria that will not exclude people of color. In its research and attendance at the existing Cuyahoga County drug courts, GCC discovered that the courts were 85-90% white. The new court has criteria that will particularly focus on the inclusion of individuals who have had prior felonies, which will be life-changing for many families in Northeast Ohio.
