On Wednesday, March 1, 2017 at noon at the Leelanau County Government Center the League of Women Voters Leelanau County will host a forum entitled Rehabilitative Alternatives to Jail. Presenters will include 86th District Court Judge Michael Stepka, Grand Traverse Band Associate Judge Michael Long, Community Corrections Manager Sherise Shively, Leelanau Family Court staff John Boonstra and Cassidy Fisher and Leelanau County Jail Art Director Deputy Diane Speas. The forum will focus on new innovative efforts offered by local courts to address adult and juveniles’ problematic behaviors that previously would have landed a person in jail. The public is invited to the presentation. Many people bring a sack lunch. LWVLC business meeting will follow.
