40 States and Guam Seek Rehabilitation Before Conviction for Veterans-Why Not NJ? 
CRIMINAL LITIGATION TRACK
Military Law and Veterans Affairs Section *As S-307/A4362 sits on the Governor's desk, awaiting signature, county prosecutors have taken the initiative to rehabilitate veterans who were law-abiding citizens before a combat deployment. Forty states have Veterans Treatment Courts and New Jersey is expected to be next. Prosecutors, veteran mentors and the Department of Veterans Affairs' programs are working together to keep America's military heroes from needless convictions. The VA has a $168 billion dollar budget and spends millions in other states for in-patient alcohol, drug and mental health programs.
