Karon White with the Drug Court told the Stevens County Board of Commissioners of the upcoming graduation from the program by Corey Hennen at their meeting last week in Morris. Hennen had a prior felony conviction, a gross misdemeanor and 2 misdemeanors before beginning the program in 2017. Since then, he has had 596 days of sobriety, 133 urinalysis tests, appeared in court 30 times, did 50 hours of community service at the Wahpeton Zoo and has held a stable job for nearly a year.
Hennen will graduate 3 p.m. October 4. He is the 23rd graduate in the 4 and a half years the Drug Court has been functioning. The program recently got a good evaluation from the National Drug Court Institute.
