Veterans Courts?

As long as I'm blogging about efforts at criminal justice reform today, I thought I'd mention this piece at Slate by Dahlia Lithwick. The article discusses the advent of "veterans courts," a specialized docket carved from the regular criminal docket for veterans whose offenses can be linked to mental illness as a result of military service.

As Hamilton County (along with the rest of the nation) struggles with how to best rehabilitate individuals who commit crimes, we'll no doubt be talking more and more about solutions like these.
