Impaired Driving & Veterans Treatment Court Graduation

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. - A celebration for the graduating members of the Impaired Driving Court and Veterans Treatment Court took place at the Yellowstone County Courthouse today.

I.D.C. Graduate, Levi Beaver, says he was very happy, nervous, and a little overwhelmed by the people that showed up to support him.

Now that beaver has returned to a life of sobriety, he is back in school pursuing a bachelor's in Business Management and Marketing.

He says that without the Impaired Driving Court program, his life would be in a much different place.

"Without them, I don't know where I would be. Probably prison, boot camp, just something. You know, they've helped me a lot. They've helped me just learn a lot about myself, just really put my mind towards something, just go for it, like getting back in school. They've just helped me to get my life back on track and I'm very grateful for it,” says Beaver.

Once finished with his bachelor's degree, Beaver hopes to move out of state and pursue graduate school.
