LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - The magistrate who oversaw Albany County’s drug court for about five years is moving on.

The Laramie Boomerang reported Monday (https://tinyurl.com/mgpban7 ) Matthew Castano has been appointed a circuit court judge for the 6th Judicial District in Crook and Weston counties.

June 26 was Castano’s last day as a magistrate in the Court Supervised Treatment Program in Albany County.

The program brings intervention and treatment services into the courtroom as well as the judge and law enforcement officers.

It’s designed to give defendants guidance to get out of trouble and back on track. Castano said that requires candor from the defendant and himself as well as the possibility of jail.

Magistrate Bob Southard has replaced Castano in the drug court.
