Judge Jason Despetorich serves as the judge for the Hocking County Common Pleas Drug Court Program. This program offers a treatment-based alternative to prison for non-violent offenders with substance abuse issues.
Through comprehensive supervision, frequent and random drug testing, treatment services, frequent interaction with the judge, residential programs, and immediate sanctions and incentives, participants are given an opportunity to turn around their lives and become drug free. By becoming drug free, they reduce the likelihood of future incarceration.
