Eugene’s Community Court is celebrating its one year anniversary Friday, September 1st. The program responds to low level crimes by providing offenders with access to social services and sentencing community service instead of jail time. Court administrator Cheryl Stone says since it began last summer, Community Court has helped almost 300 people and produced over 60 program graduates.
