(MUNSTER) - A northern Indiana judge is helping troubled veterans get their lives back in order.

The Times of Munster reports Porter Superior Judge Julia Jent started the Veterans Treatment Court slightly more than two years ago. Case managers, mental health professionals, prosecutors and public defenders work to help veterans who have had a run-in with the law try to solve some of the problems they are facing.

On Friday, six military veterans graduated from the program. Sixty-three-year-old Paul Hake of Porter says it completely changed his life. Hake is a Marine veteran who served in Vietnam. He says he had a problem with alcohol, but now he has his life back.

The class was the third graduating class since the program began.
