Yet another state is pushing to bring back special courts for veterans
from Task & Purpose
Veterans accused of crimes often share similar trauma from their time in the service. Post-traumatic stress disorder. Military sexual assault. Brain injuries. Special courts are gaining traction nationwide to help these veterans avoid being repeatedly arrested by combining treatment with accountability. That's why Benton Country, Washington, prosecutor Andy Miller and a team of court officials and veterans advocates plan to ask county commissioners to tap a public safety fund to recreate Spokane County's Veterans Treatment Court in Benton and possibly Franklin counties.
