Richland County Common Pleas Court Judge Brent Robinson has been asked by the Ohio Supreme Court and Governor John Kasich to assemble a group of community leaders to attend Ohio's Judicial Symposium on Opiate Addiction, June 30th in Columbus. Robinson oversees the county's Substance Abuse Treatment Court, which is a specialty docket for criminal defendants with drug abuse and addiction problems. The symposium will focus on providing offenders with the most up to date addiction treatment options. Robinson welcomes learning about new techniques, but wants to see more education of young people about the dangers of using prescription pain- killers and how they often lead to heroin abuse. Judge Robinson will host a town hall meeting with the nine-member team to discuss the symposium and answer questions from citizens, July 17th at five p.m. in courtroom #1 in the Richland County administration building. The other local officials are Mansfield Municipal Court Judge Frank Ardis, Jr., Richland County Prosecutor James Mayer, Jr., Commissioner Tim Wert, Chief Sheriff's Deputy Major Joe Masi, Drug Court Senior Officer Pam Myers, retired criminal defense attorney Steve Cockley, Mental Health and Recovery Services Director Joe Trolian, Catalyst Life Services C.E.O. Veronica Groff, and Community Action for Capable Youth Director Tracee Anderson.
