Mike Elmore On Assignment Healthcare Staffing

The name of James Michael Eller, as in the past, was listed among defendants on a court docket listing cases pending before Cumberland County Criminal Court. The difference between this occasion and past appearances is that Eller returned to court armed with a success story.

Eller’s brushes with the law go back at least eight years and difficulties with addiction caused him to violate conditions of his parole.

Eighteen months ago Eller — facing jail time — enrolled in a long-term in-house rehab program and last week he returned to court delivering his diploma signifying his successful completion of the Faith Farms rehab program and telling Criminal Court Judge Gary McKenzie that he was staying in the program to work as a staff member.

McKenzie congratulated the probationer but added a word of caution.

“It is undeniable what you have done. You have invested a lot … and your hard work has paid off,” McKenzie said. “One mistake can blow it, but you know that.”

Ironically, Eller completed his rehab assignment as the time he was to serve on probation expired. He was released from any further supervision with the congratulations of the court.
