Volunteer attorneys, probation officers and others are making it possible for veterans to participate in the newly formed General Sessions Veteran’s Treatment Court in Williamson County. VTC is a one to two-year program for non-violent felony and misdemeanor offenses, the Williamson Herald reports. The court is paid for by criminal court fees and through benefits veterans have earned from their military service. "This program can work in any county because it doesn’t rely on money, it relies on time,” Judge Tom Taylor said.
