On Tuesday evening, September 18, 2012 The Sarasota County Bar Association presented Florida Veterans for Common Sense their Distinguished Service Award by a Layperson to the Legal Community.
The plaque reads: Presented to Florida Veterans for Common Sense for their dedicated effort to establish Veterans Diversion Courts throughoutFlorida, and their active support of the Courts Assisting Veterans program inSarasota, Manatee andDeSotoCounties. Courts Assisting Veterans is instrumental in diverting hundreds of veterans who come in contact with the criminal justice system, offering a useful tool for criminal defense practitioners and reducing the burden on law enforcement, prosecutors, and the court system, and ultimately providing the veterans an opportunity to continue as contributing citizens.
Every members and friend can be very proud that FLVCS received this prestigious award.
