Dallas Community Court for the Homeless - Fall 2010

One of the most critical issues facing many in the homeless community is the need to resolve legal problems. To meet this need, the Dallas Municipal Courts, the Dallas City Attorney’s office, and private attorneys in collaboration with The Stewpot provide complete Class C misdemeanor case resolution (other than thefts and assaults). A significant aspect of the Class C misdemeanor resolution is the alternative sentencing program. Community service organizations provide counseling and volunteer work opportunities to satisfy conditions of the alternative sentencing program imposed as a result of a guilty plea.

The next Community Court date is Nov. 6, 2010
Deadline to submit applications at The Stewpot is Oct. 15, 2010

Applications can be picked up at The Stewpot, 408 Park Ave, Dallas 75201 or
