Court Initiative

VPGR is exploring initiatives aimed at directing more offenders of non-violent gambling related crimes into treatment in exchange for either reduce incarceration sentences or in place of incarceration.  For example, VPGR ambassadors are approaching current therapeutic courts (treatment courts) and encourage them to process "pilot" cases where the offenses were related to a gambling disorder.  It is hoped that if just one treatment court succeeded in delivering therapeutic justice  to cases involving gambling related crimes that these types of prison diversion efforts will proliferate to other treatment courts and more disordered gamblers will receive the help they need to quickly return to being productive citizens in our communities.  We are also looking into legislative concepts involving sentencing reform related to offenses perpetrated by a disordered gambler and will continue to advocate for Oregon's criminal justice system to include gambling courts.
