"Restoring Lives to Restore Communities"
Twenty-First Judicial District Adult Felony Intervention Court
Holmes, Humphreys and Yazoo Counties
The Twenty-First Judicial District Adult Felony Intervention Court for the State of Mississippi was designed to change lives, restore families, and protect the community. This Court will enhance the quality of life for all citizens in the 21st District.
Drugs and alcohol have played a major role in destroying the family unit and the increase in crime in the District. People who use drugs often find themselves committing additional crimes to support their addictions, and their family, loved ones, and friends are no longer a priority in the life of a drug or alcohol offender, eventually causing the family unit to be destroyed. Without the intervention of this Court, the offender ends up right back where they started repeating the same violations of the past, destroying themselves, their family, and the community.
The Twenty-First Judicial District Adult Felony Intervention Court, by working in unity with the offenders, their families, and the community, through judicial and clinical treatment, will change the offender's life, thereby restoring families while protecting and restoring the community.
