VA Inpatient Treatment?


Hey Jim I was curious do you know of any cases where a Vet was released from Pretrial jail to VA impatient treatment until trial.

I'm not a lawyer, much less a criminal defense lawyer so I can't answer you other than to hazard a guess. I'd guess that nobody would entertain the idea of letting someone who isn't eligible for bail go to VA, even as an inpatient in a secure ward. Beyond that, it's hard to imagine how to convince anyone at VA they should accept responsibility for someone who is currently charged with a crime. So...nope, that's not going to work.
