Scott County Circuit Court Judge Jason Mount and Judge Alison Frazier spoke at a recent dinner meeting of the Scottsburg Kiwanis Club at the Roadhouse USA.  Pictured with Judge Mount and Judge Frazier is Kiwanis President Al Riggle.  Judge Mount provided an update on the Scott County Circuit Court.  Judge Frazier was added to the Scott County Circuit Court as a Magistrate as a result of legislation proposed by Rep Terry Goodin and passed by the Indiana Legislature.  Her addition will help shorten the calendar for wait times for hearings.   Judge Mount has implemented a “Talk to a Lawyer” Day for free legal advice on the 4th Wednesdays of the month.  He also talked about an effort to implement Criminal Rule 26 which provided evidence based tools to determine who should be held in jail.  The huge majority of individuals in the Scott County Jail are there waiting trial instead of there due to convictions.  Reducing this number where it makes sense would save many dollarsThe Kiwanis appreciated Judge Mount’s presentation and the opportunity to meet Judge Frazier.
