Idaho Courtrooms Going to the Dogs


Lawyers were introduced to a new witness-assistance program at yesterday's meeting of Idaho prosecutors: courthouse dogs. The dogs are intended to help comfort witnesses through the emotional stress of navigating courtroom processes.

Sunday is Ada County's courtroom dog, who was donated to the court four months ago and, according to Ada County Prosecutor Greg Bower, has been a total success, especially with juvenile victims.
