Eunice City Court Judge Terry Hoychick

Judge says drugs are the core of crime

Eunice City Court Judge Terry Hoychick pointed to drugs as the underlying cause of crime.
But he also notes many people do not know there is another way to live other than what they are doing.
“I saw people that come into city court, and I still see every day, they simply don’t know there is a different way to live life then what they have been given,” he said at the Eunice Rotary Club on Wednesday.
Hoychick, who took office in January 2015, says it was God telling him to seek election to the office.
