Judges back effort for inmate re-entry program

Two Western District federal judges say they support a proposal for a “re-entry court” where inmates returning to society regularly report on their progress in group meetings with the judges.  Both Chief U.S. District Judge James P. Jones and District Judge Samuel G. Wilson have asked the district probation office to set up a re-entry court similar to one developed two years ago in Oregon.  As reported by The Roanoke Times, a pilot project in the Western District should debut next year.
