Message from Judge Bo Hunter

Judge Hunter is expanding the list of possible non-profit organizations that could use community service people when assigned from State and Magistrate Court. Organizations currently using community service workers have commented that approximately 20% return as volunteers if they have been assigned to something that is an area of interest for them. If you are connected with any organization or group that might benefit from community service workers, please send the group name and contact person to thehunterfirm@gmail.com.
