Two more persons graduated Tuesday from the federal court’s Drug Offender Re-entry Program.
Ryan Taitano Babauta and Manuel Aldan Sablan became the fourth and fifth persons to graduate from the program.
U.S. District Court for the NMI Chief Judge Ramona V. Manglona and Magistrate Judge Heather L. Kennedy presented Babauta and Sablan with certificates of completion during the graduation ceremony held in the District Court Tuesday afternoon.
Manglona and DORE team members praised Babauta and Sablan during several DORE sessions for showing positive adjustments after being found compliant with DORE’s conditions and requirements.
The DORE Program is a post-incarceration cooperative effort program of the U.S. District Court, U.S. Probation Office, Federal Public Defender, and U.S. Attorney’s Office.
DORE provides treatment and sanction alternative to address re-integration into the community for non-violent, substance abuse offenders release from federal prison.
