The scene within the Bulloch County Courthouse was a courtroom drama of a different sort Tuesday, when the Bulloch County DUI Court honored its first graduating class since the program began about one year ago. Two graduates, who just months ago were facing extended jail sentences for repeat DUI offenses, were celebrated for a year-long commitment to alcohol abuse treatment and wished well on new, sober lives. John “J.J” Crawford and Madison Southerlin were presented with certificates of completion and medallions commemorating their success in a packed courtroom chambers filled with friends, family, other program participants, court staff and local and state representatives.
