VVA Recognizes Cuyahoga County, Ohio, Judge Who Established Felony Veterans Treatment Court

(New Orleans) – “Michael E. Jackson was a Marine lieutenant in Vietnam who called in artillery strikes on his coordinates to save his company from being overrun. He returned home, went to law school, and established a lucrative law practice in Cleveland, Ohio. Several years ago, Jackson ran for a judgeship in Cuyahoga County, Ohio, expressly to establish a veterans treatment court so that veterans charged with felony offenses have an alternative to incarceration,” said John Rowan, National President of VVA. “Many of these troubled men and women warrant our best efforts to help them redeem their lives, and he is exactly the type of veteran we are proud to honor.”
