CASPER, Wyo. — The Natrona County Commissioners have appointed Judge Josh Eames to the Casper Re-Entry Center Community Board at their regular meeting Aug. 2, 2022.

Eames will fill the board’s unexpired term ending June 30, 2023. The appointment was confirmed as part of the Commission’s consent agenda at the regular meeting.

The Casper Re-Entry Community Board meets monthly, and makes decisions regarding the residents of the correctional center. The city’s Re-Entry Center is part of the Adult Community Corrections Program, which provides “housing and case management services for probationers, parolees, inmates, and offenders on community supervision who have violated community supervision conditions.” These people may be sanctioned by Field Services to go through the program as an alternative to probation or revocation of parole.

The program provides a transition option for incarcerated people who are preparing to reenter Wyoming’s communities. Additionally, the center houses a Therapeutic Community Treatment Program, which works to treat substance abuse issues in incarcerated males prior to their reintegration into society.

Currently, Eames is the District Court Judge for the Seventh Judicial District, serving Natrona County. Since 2019, he has served as a Senior Assistant Attorney General in the Wyoming Attorney General. Before that, he was an Assistant Attorney General, and he has also served as a staff attorney for Judge Steven Sharpe in the First Judicial District Court.

“We appreciate your dedication and willingness to volunteer your valuable time and services to your community,” wrote commission chairman Paul Bertoglio in a letter to Eames.

The Natrona County Commissioners’ consent agenda for their regular meeting Aug. 2 is as follows:
