Senior Judge Tom Kohl is a graduate of the University of Kentucky (BA) and the University of Toledo (JD). In 2006 he lost his daughter, Megan, to a brutal murder. Judge Kohl wrote a book about the murder of Megan and his experiences in drug court. The book opened the doors for him to begin speaking in prisons in Oregon and around the country which eventually led to the idea of placing a fully accredited college program in prison. He retired from full time judging on January 1, 2016 and currently is on assignment, part time, as a Senior Judge for the State of Oregon.
