Judge Robert Russell Lecture

Many people visited the Buffalo Naval Park on July 22nd to see the honorable Judge Robert Russell’s lecture about the issues that face many veterans, specifically female veterans. Judge Russell created the nation’s first Veterans Treatment Court who’s mission is to successfully habilitate veterans by diverting them from the traditional criminal justice system and providing them with the tools they need in order to lead a productive and law-abiding lifestyle.

Judge Russell’s presentation entitled “Buffalo’s Veterans Treatment Court & The Women Who Appear Before It” covered many topics including Veteran criminal activity, drug use, mental illness, homelessness and more.
