Louisiana Weekly Endorses Drug Court Candidate

Judge, Juvenile Court, Section B: Jason E. Cantrell
Too many aspirants for Juvenile Court have come to our editors without real experience in the court. That cannot be said of Jason Cantrell. He has shepherded hundreds of wayward young people through the Drug Court system, and they have gone on to lead productive lives.
A defense attorney who has a prosecutor’s “zero tolerance for guns,” he strikes the proper balance of viewpoints a judge needs. His notion of allowing second time, non-violent drug offenders into the Drug Court program recognizes that someone with a couple of simple possession convictions needs an alternative to jail time. He or she needs treatment and education.
