Question: I have a court date tomorrow but need to get my charges switched from regular court to veterans court. How do I do thqt

Answer: Veterans' Court is an option if the charge is a misdemeanor.  It is not available for felony charges.  The Veterans’ Administration and local authorities are engaging in a cooperative effort to help veterans who have fallen afoul of the law get their lives back on track and on the road to recovery.  A veteran who commits a misdemeanor crime in any one of the participating courts can ask that his or her case be transferred to Veterans’ Court.  The judge has a list of the criteria for Veterans’ Court.  If the case meets the criteria, the judge will make the transfer and notify the prosecution.  You can ask your lawyer or the prosecutor to recommend the case go to Veterans' Court.  Veterans' Court is not an easy way out.  You must complete the entire program and attend all of the hearings.
