Adams supervisors approve youth drug court funding

Natchez -

After state cuts reduced the Adams County Youth Drug Court's funding by 73 percent, the Adams County Board of Supervisors has voted to give the court a temporary infusion of cash to tide it over until fresh funds arrive.
    
The Natchez Democrat reports Youth Court Judge John Hudson appeared before the supervisors Monday to request the $13,896 necessary to keep three youth court positions - the compliance officer, the prosecutor and the defender - funded until October, when the judge said he expects significant grant funds to arrive.
    
Hudson says the funds he expects to come available in October are from a grant specifically addressed to Mississippi youth and family drug courts.
