CHICAGO — A law passed last year requires every judicial circuit in Illinois to have a veterans treatment court starting Jan. 1.
The courts allow veterans who were honorably discharged to plead guilty to a crime in exchange for a probation sentence, The Chicago Tribune reported. The sentence requires frequent court visits and mental health or substance abuse treatment.
Veterans also can apply to have their records expunged upon completing the sentence. Those who use the courts typically face lower level felonies.
Employers and veterans are far apart on how they understand each other, but in many ways veterans are a lot like their civilian counterparts, a new study shows.
The study, released Friday by the marketing firm Edelman, shows that employers and veterans differ greatly on what they see in each other, and adds to a growing divide that has complicated the transition for troops leaving the service searching for jobs.
