J and D Court: What's on the Docket in Lynchburg
If you were a judge in Lynchburg on the J and D court, as you arrived in Court this morning you would be looking at a docket of 13 cases:
Nine of the charges are Assault Family/Household Member
One Charge of Child Neglect/Abuse -- Reckless Disregard
One Charge of Assault and battery
One Charge of Violation of protective order
One Charge of Larceny firearm burglary felon-unarmed
What strikes me the most about this is the nine charges of assault of a family or household member.
Over all, this seems to the pattern that the J and D court finds itself in. Children who are abusive to their parents. And day after day, our judges are faced to deliberate on these same issues over and over. The same problem, children out of control, each day court is in session, a repetitive problem that has been eluding solution. I have a question for all of us, what should we be doing to correct this problem?
