Veteran’s Treatment Court opens in Onondaga County

By David Hammond

The brand new Veteran’s Treatment Court in Onondaga County is a judicial diversion program for misdemeanor and felony-level veteran offenders.  The goal of this court is to help those that served our nation by providing them with an alternative to the traditional justice system.  CDH Law, a veteran-owned law firm, is proud to participate in this exciting initiative by providing defense counsel services to the court. This article discusses the new initiative in more detail.  If you are a veteran and charged with a crime in Onondaga County, we would be happy to discuss this initiative with you.
