WATCH: Revolving Door Part 5: What Programs Work?

By Nick Davis, October 20, 2017

JURY NOTICE: This story involves alleged criminals, some of which have current cases before Wapello County and other area courts. If you are serving jury duty or plan to serve jury duty in the coming months, please do not view this report.

This is a five part series of the 25 most arrested people of Wapello County, evaluating the problem of recidivism and what is being done to address the problem. In this special report, we’ll sit down with Wapello County Sheriff Mark Miller to discuss the problem, Representative Mary Gaskill and Senator Mark Chelgren to find out what the legislature is doing, Wapello County Attorney Gary Oldenburger will discuss how the problem affects the courts and on Friday we’ll discuss programs and policies that work.

Today we’ll talk to one of the 25 individuals listed below. Laura Parker will share how she went from being arrested 18 times in three years to being clean and arrest free for the last two. She’ll talk about how mental health and drug problems play a role in repeat offenders. We’ll also discuss programs, such as the Mental Health and Drug Courts, that have proven successful in our own community.
