Veteran's Court in Madison County

Posted on May 29, 2014

Clients who are charged with a felony or misdemeanor charge have the option to elect to complete Veteran's Court.  Veteran's Court was created by now retired Judge Charles Romani, himself a war veteran, to concentrate on problems experienced by veterans and the criminal system.  If a client is admitted to Veteran's Court his/her case is ultimately dismissed.  The charges range from any misdemeanor to a felony offense.  Not all felony offenses qualify for entry into the court.  The States Attorney must agree to allow the client into the court.  If the client completes Veteran's Court their charge(s) are dismissed.  Usually the court will require the person to attend court for at least a year at the rate of once a month.  Conditions of Veteran's Court include mental health evaluation and treatment and sometimes other classes are required.  This is a good option for persons who have served overseas for our military.
