In 2017, Judge Mosley's passion to start a county drug court came to pass for Hutchinson County. He wanted to go forth with a non-traditional approach to the war on drugs. With the idea to save lives, provide community safety, a better rate of recidivism and public health, and a higher rate of accountability Mosley created a team of members that have similar goals in mind for the community.
