Kingman Veterans Court Tour

Who is eligible?

All veterans and current military members are eligible to be seen at the Kingman Veterans’ Court.

Offenses

The Kingman Veterans’ Court accepts criminal misdemeanor cases and some civil traffic offenses filed in Kingman Municipal Court. A misdemeanor is a minor criminal offense. A few examples of a misdemeanor are disorderly conduct, petty theft or trespass.  The veteran, prosecutor and judge must all agree before a case is referred to the Veterans’ Court docket. The Kingman City Prosecutor’s Office can refuse admission to this Court if admission would violate the law or the interest of justice.  If the charge(s) are being challenged, the case will be referred to a non‐Veteran Court docket.

Program

The Court recognizes that every person is different and experiences a range of issues associated with service in the military or other life circumstances.

A unique plan is designed for each veteran. The program can be covered by the VA for those who qualify.
