Veteran’s courts across the country offer substance abuse help, mental health treatments and other special programs to offenders who have served in the military. For many vets, it’s a welcome alternative to spending time behind bars. Richard Schwermer is the Utah Problem Solving Courts Coordinator. He says help provided by a proposed state veteran’s court would offer a more long-term solution to offenders who are vets.</p> Wed, 10 Jul 2013 22:38:50 +0000 Brian Grimmett 32211 at http://kuer.org State Considers Creation of Veteran's Court
