State Senate president Therese Murray announced last week that Plymouth District Court Judge Rosemary Minehan has been honored as an “Unsung Heroine of 2014” by the Massachusetts Commission on the Status of Women. Minehan currently leads the Plymouth Drug Court, a specialized court that aims to expand access to addiction treatment. “Congratulations to Judge Minehan for receiving such a well-deserved honor,” said Murray, in a press release. “Her contributions to Plymouth County are numerous, and she has especially been instrumental in helping drug addicts seek recovery services and get back on their feet. We continue to face a serious problem in regards to a growing opioid and heroin addiction epidemic affecting the entire state. Judge Minehan has fearlessly tackled this issue head-on and the Commonwealth is grateful for her continued leadership and dedication.”
