Fifteen years ago, when I was a new prosecutor, I had a case that impacted me for years. I was prosecuting a matter involving a defendant who was a military veteran. I learned through his defense attorney that he had been deployed overseas during a conflict. Because of those experiences, the veteran began self-medicating with alcohol after leaving the military. The abuse of alcohol was a catalyst in criminal behavior that led him to getting charges.
