In October of 2012, our client was arrested by the Coventry Police Department and charged with drunk driving. He submitted to the chemical test and had readings over .15. Due to our client's military service, he was accepted into the Rhode Island Veterans Diversion Program.
The Chief of the District Court, Judge Jeanne LaFazia, established the Veterans Diversion Program in 2011. The program was originally limited to the 3rd Division District Court in Kent County but has since expanded to include all District Courts. The program is designed to help both active military and veterans who are charged with misdemeanor crimes. The program entails counseling and group therapy sessions with other veterans and a period of follow-ups to ensure the veterans do not re-offend.
The goal of the program is to help veterans and active military members reintegrate into society and address any issues resulting from their military service including trauma, PTSD, and other mental health issues. Due to Attorney Humphrey's experience and skill in the Veterans Diversion Program, the DUI charge was dismissed and has since been expunged from our client's record. Our client never lost his license and he was able to maintain a clean criminal record.
If you are in the military and have been charged with a crime, please allow Attorney Robert H. Humphrey's reputation, experience and skill to successfully guide you through the legal process. Please contact Attorney Robert H. Humphrey, Esq., at 401-816-5862 or e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
