In this photo taken Tuesday, Dec. 11, 2012, at the court of Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Tynan addresses a Veterans Court in Los Angeles.Tynan, still going strong at 76, has presided over alternative sentencing programs for nearly two decades to help military veterans, drug addicts, the mentally ill and women convicts tackle problems that led to crime. While courts tailored to help drug addicts and veterans exist elsewhere, Tynan may be the only judge in the nation running so many alternative sentencing programs for some of the most troubled people in the criminal justice system.
