The Williams County Juvenile & Probate Courts has seen an exponential increase in its caseload in the past few years, from 540 cases to about 600 from 2020 to 2022, Juvenile/Probate Court Judge Karen Gallagher told county commissioners during their regular meeting Monday.

She said the court also handles another 200 guardianship cases from its offices — which includes a second floor office and courtroom, and the county juvenile probation department on the first floor — in the county courthouse in downtown Bryan.
