A new class of Colonial CASA Advocates was sworn in recently by the Honorable George C. Fairbanks, IV in Williamsburg. Having successfully completed 27 hours of classroom training, 12 hours of online training, and 9 additional hours of courtroom observation, the seven new Advocates will be assigned to cases throughout the 9th Judicial District, which includes Williamsburg, James City County, York County and Poquoson. Colonial CASA has been serving child victims of abuse or neglect in the community since 1995.
