ELKHART — On March 14, during the Elkhart County Drug-Free Partnership banquet, the Indiana Chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) presented Elkhart County Prosecuting Attorney, Curtis T. Hill, Jr., with a Certificate of Appreciation. The award was in recognition of his work and statewide reputation for the prosecution of impaired and dangerous drivers.
Lael Hill (no relation), representing MADD Indiana, acknowledged that Elkhart County is known for its aggressive enforcement of OWI laws which are strongly supported and encouraged by Hill's policies on OWI.
During his acceptance of the award, Hill recalled that his career in prosecution began as an Elkhart County Deputy Prosecutor under a state grant issued by the former Governor's Task Force to Reduce Drunk Driving.
Hill credited the efforts of organizations like MADD and the firm enforcement of OWI with helping to change attitudes about drinking and driving.
