Description:

In January 2017, the Eleventh Judicial Circuit of Florida opened Veterans Treatment Court to offer pre-adjudicatory non-violent felony veteran offenders the opportunity to avoid prosecution and improve their quality of life. Veterans treatment court is designed to provide treatment in lieu of incarceration for veterans whose substance use disorders and/or mental illness appear to have contributed significantly to their arrest. The program seeks to divert eligible veteran participants from the traditional criminal justice system and offer them support and rehabilitation through comprehensive substance abuse and/or mental health treatment, educational and vocational programs, and community resource referrals for housing and transportation, all while being judicially monitored for a minimum of 14 months.

Felony cases, no misdemeanors cases
