Pay Attention to November Elections if You Care About Criminal Justice Reform in New York

Our goal in this blog is not to support one candidate or party over others. That’s not our purpose.

That said, we’d be remiss if we didn’t call your attention to an interesting article in The Gothamist run earlier this week, breaking down the state of criminal justice reform in New York and how different candidates may impact the issues under debate one way or the other.

The issues at stake include bail reform, discovery, the right to a speedy trial, parole reform, the decriminalization of marijuana, civil asset forfeiture, record expungement, the issue of whether immigrants should be deported over misdemeanors, and the impact of court fees and fines on low-income defendants.

We’ve covered some of these issues on our blog before. It seems a good time to round up some resources, both on-site and off-site, where you can learn more.
