‘We Do Not Address Veterans as Criminals’

Judge James T. Gleason discussed how he runs the Douglas County Veterans Treatment Court during a lunch-and-learn session last Tuesday at the Creighton University School of Law. Gleason, who is a U.S. Army Vietnam War veteran, was invited to speak by the school’s Military Law Society. Gleason explained how the court is modeled off the success of drug courts. He said the problem-solving court is successful at reducing recidivism while saving taxpayers money. “We do not address veterans as criminals,” Gleason said. “They’re law-breakers, but they’re not criminals. We don’t look at it from that point of view. We look at it as clientele that have issues.” To be eligible for the Douglas County Veterans Treatment Court, cases have to request or be referred for placement. The client must be charged with a felony and be serving or have served in the U.S. Armed Forces or the U.S. Armed Forces Reserve or Army or Air National Guard. While the court is based in Douglas County, Gleason said a couple cases also have been considered from adjacent counties.

Legal Aid Plans Afternoon of Family Fun at Turner Park

By Scott Stewart

The Daily Record

  Legal Aid of Nebraska invites Omaha families to enjoy a spring afternoon at Turner Park while learning more about and supporting the nonprofit’s work to bring hope, self-sufficiency and justice to Nebraskans through qualified civil legal aid.

  The fundraising event will be Wednesday, May 22, from 3 to 7 p.m. at Turner Park, located in the heart of Midtown Crossing.

  “We want to be out in the community and let people know who we are in Omaha,” said Sam Bates, community engagement coordinator at Legal Aid of Nebraska. “It’s completely free. We will have live entertainment, kids’ activities, games and we’re hoping to partner with someone down there to have food.”

  The nonprofit will give away pet bandanas and hold an open audition for its next unofficial Equal Justice Doggo mascot. To participate, people will share photos of their pet wearing their Legal Aid of Nebraska bandana.

  “We’ll be featuring those on our website and social media and having some fun,” Bates said.

  The fundraiser coincides with the Omaha Community Foundation’s annual Omaha Gives event, which asks for donations to Omaha-Council Bluffs area charities over a 24-hour period. Last year’s campaign raised more than $7.4 million. Learn more about Omaha Gives at omahagives.org.
