We had some difficulties at Sisston-Wahpeton because 90% of the participants in our Wellness Court are state court referrals for felony drug and alcohol offenses and since the state court did not operate a drug court the former prosecutor argued to the state Judge that he should not refer tribal members to our court unless we also accepted non-Indians. We got around it when she got voted out of office. BJ Jones

A specific concern voiced was the appearance of giving different treatment to tribal members versus the general population.  I would appreciate any thoughts or experiences learned you are willing to share.
