At the regular meeting of Ava Lion’s Club Monday evening, they had as their guest, Prosecuting Attorney Roger Wall.
Mr. Wall told the Lions of some of his many jobs as Prosecuting Attorney. When someone is taking drugs and has gone through drug court, they are under intense supervision and are tested at random two or three times per week.
Mr. Wall also informed the Lions that in 1979 Missouri had approximately 6,000 inmates in the prisons, and today there are about 30,000 inmates, in the 30 prisons in Missouri. A DWI court is coming in the near future and Mr. Wall hopes it will be this coming fall.
He said he appreciates all that the Lions do in the community.
Mr. Wall is one of many sponsors for the Lion’s walk/run on May 14.
