The Domestic Violence Treatment Option
The Domestic Violence Court (DVC) is a therapeutic court that addresses domestic violence and offers the Domestic Violence Court Treatment Option. The DVC Treatment Option allows those who are willing to take responsibility for their actions, who elect to plead guilty, and who will receive a sentence that does not include jail time, to complete a counselling program for domestic violence and address any substance abuse problems they may have. Domestic Violence Courts are located in three Saskatchewan cities: Regina, Saskatoon and North Battleford. “Saskatchewan Law Courts” web page for domestic violence courts is at: http://www.sasklawcourts.ca/index.php....
