Two veterans completed Henderson’s Veterans Treatment Court on Thursday, July 19, and were celebrated with a graduation ceremony at the Henderson Municipal Court. Matt White, Master Chief Petty Officer, United States Navy (Retired) and Veterans Treatment Court Mentor was the guest speaker for the event, and Chief Judge Mark Stevens followed his remarks by acknowledging the struggles and accomplishments of each graduate. “I couldn’t be more proud of these two veterans. They have worked hard during their time in this program and have made a lot of positive changes in their lives,” said Judge Stevens. Jerry Carley and Bradley Taylor mark the 132nd and 133rd graduates for Henderson Veterans Treatment Court since its inception in 2011. Veterans that successfully complete the program have their charges dismissed or conditionally dismissed and in some cases records may be sealed.
Veterans Treatment Court (VTC) is held every Thursday at 2 p.m. in Department 1 of the Henderson Municipal Court. For more information regarding VTC please visit the website at HendersonVeteransCourt.com.
