Specialized criminal courts for veterans diagnosed with PTSD and brain injuries

Today's San Diego Union Tribune has published a very interesting article here about specialized courts for veterans that have been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder or brain injuries and face civilian criminal charges. The UT indicates that the "goal of these courts is to rehabilitate the veterans not by putting them in jail but by providing aggressive case management which often includes closely monitored medical treatment, counseling and permanent housing."
