Franklin Municipal Court Drug Court Is Coming

00Franklin DUITags: , , , , , , ,

Judge Rupert E. Ruppert of the Franklin Municipal Court will soon be implementing a drug and a mental health docket. The decision follows a decision by the Warren County Commission to hire a full-time magistrate to help implement the new dockets.  Greg Demos was picked by Judge Ruppert to be the Court’s Magistrate. The plan is to have both of the programs up and running by June. The Franklin Municipal Court, like many courts in the Miami Valley, has been dealing with an increase in heroin cases in Franklin, Carlisle and Franklin Township. [see DDN story]

We will report whether or not an OVI offense will be allowed to be a case that can be set on the Drug Court docket.  In most of the courts throughout Ohio, a DUI is not handled in the specialized docket, but it treated as a more serious offense requiring that it be heard on the regular court docket.

If you need help with an OVI case in the Franklin Municipal Court contact Charles M. Rowland II or visit www.FranklinDUIdefense.com to learn more about the court.

Warren County Courts Consider Consolidation

warrenIn a recent Dayton Daily News article, the prospect of merging the Warren County Court into the Franklin Municipal Court and the Lebanon Municipal Court was brought before the Warren County Commissioners.  At the request of Franklin Municipal Court Judge Rupert Ruppert and Lebanon Municipal Court Judge Mark Brogen, the Warren County Commission has contracted the National Center for State Courts to study whether the county court should be consolidated with the municipal courts in Franklin and Lebanon. The county agreed to pay the NCSC $25,992 to study the consolidation, and the report is due at the end of May or early June.  A consolidation of the part-time courts into full-time courts would allow the judges to begin specialized dockets and offer other meaningful services to defendants.  In addition, consolidation of part-time courts was a goal for former Chief Justice Thomas Moyer.  His agenda has been furthered under current Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor.  In the article, she is quoted as saying, “I intend to follow the lead of former Chief Justice Thomas J. Moyer by strongly encouraging local judges and legislative officials to examine the use of part-time judges and advocating for them to consolidate such positions where possible, for the greater purpose of creating a full-time judiciary throughout the state.”  Below is the current jurisdiction of the various courts serving Warren County.
