Hall judge to chair state group; county's drug court recognized by same group

By AccessWDUN Staff

Hall County Superior Court Judge Kathy Gosselin has been named Chair of the Council of Accountability Courts and the county's drug court has been named a Model Court by that same group.

Judge Gosselin began her one-year term as Chair of the Council of Accountability Courts July 1.

Gosselin has 15 years of experience presiding over a mental health court and five years of experience with the veteran court.

Her election as Chair to this state-wide council comes after serving as the mental health court representative on the Executive Committee for three years (the initial three years of the Council's formation), the Funding Chair for the last four years (overseeing grants to all the accountability courts in the State), and as Vice-Chair last year.

DRUG COURT RECOGNITION

The goal of Georgia's Accountability Court Model Court program, supported by the Council of Accountability Court Judges, is to recognize the great work of accountability courts across the state, as well as identify strong programs that may serve as mentors for other courts.

Programs identified as "Model Courts" are those that have met and exceeded adherence to Georgia's Standards as dictated by strong performance on certification and peer review processes.

Hall County's Drug Court is presided over by Superior Court Judge Jason Deal.
