Boston, courts coming to the aid of veterans

Initiative designed to help those who have fallen by the wayside

Plans are underway to create a special “veterans’ court” in Boston that would provide services for veterans entering the court system who struggle with substance abuse or mental health issues.

The initiative will employ a team-based approach that most likely will involve lawyers, probation officers, counselors, and Veterans Administration staff to help offenders get back on the right track.
