The Juvenile Court held probation evening appointments this week. Youth on probation and their parent or guardian appear before the Perry County Juvenile Court Probation Officers Mendy Boley, Jeff York and Gary Martin. The Juvenile Court currently has approximately 80 youth on probation over the summer. The probation officers and Judge Cooperrider, through grant funding, have taken probation youth who have done well on two kayaking trips and bowling with pizza.
Judge Cooperrider heard 15 children services cases this week. Two children were placed in the permanent custody of children services. One child, a female, was placed in a residential treatment facility and 10 children were removed by Judge Cooperrider and placed by children services in foster care and several kinship placements.
Two children returned home as the parents are complying with all orders and have successfully completed their case plans and residential drug treatment. All other parents must complete their case plans in order to have their children returned home safely.
