WILBER, Neb. (AP) — Thayer County is expected to join the Southeast Nebraska Drug Court program.
Beatrice radio station KWBE reported that Gage County board members soon will vote on the proposal. Jefferson and Saline County boards have already approved the addition of Thayer County.
Gage, Jefferson and Saline Counties are the original members of the drug court, which is based in Wilber. It offers people who are convicted of drug felonies a chance to complete a rehabilitation program. If they are successful, the charges can be cleared from their records.
Drug court administrator Kristy Rivers said Thayer County would contribute $1,000 for its first year of membership.
