Twelve proud people graduated Monday from the latest class of Mansfield Municipal Court's Mental Health Court. All had found themselves in legal trouble by way of substance abuse or a criminal offense, brought on by a mental illness. They underwent the necessary treatment, and are considered ready to return to being productive citizens. Judges Jerry Ault and Frank Ardis say this class worked hard to overcome their difficulties, and are confident they won't re-offend. Each Mental Health Court graduate was given a certificate and a gift, along with sandwiches, chips, cookies, and punch at the end of the ceremony.  The graduates are; Angela Baker, Lakela Brooks, Byron Jeske, Brian McLaughlin, Christopher Vollmer, Todd Bridges, Christina Chacey, Amanda Grady, Charles Jose, Lakisha Williams, and two others who did not want their names disclosed.
