Veterans Restorative Justice Act with Annual Legislative Update

The first hour will highlight the Veterans Restorative Justice Act (VRJA). Passed in 2021, the VRJA is the result of a collaboration between prosecutors, defense attorneys, social workers, and the state and federal Veterans Affairs agencies that created a specialized sentencing structure for veterans who committed criminal offenses as the result of a service-connected condition. Eligible veterans are given the opportunity to avoid jail time and a criminal conviction if they complete all recommended treatment and abide by other conditions ordered by the court.

The second hour of the program will be a briefing on legislative updates on issues related to, and affecting, servicemembers, veterans, and their families.

This CLE is approved for credit through August 18, 2024.
