CASI featured on Valley Public Radio, Mike Males explains trends
CJCJ's California Sentencing Institute (CASI), released on July 30, featured on Valley Edition on August 7, 2012. CASI shows that on average, Valley counties utilize state and local incarceration more than the rest of the state. As AB 109 criminal justice realignment progresses, these counties are now faced with tough decisions about how to best serve low level offenders locally.
With interviews from CJCJ's Senior Research Fellow Mike Males, and San Francisco Public Defender Jeff Adachi, Valley Edition takes an in-deph look into why Valley counties have historically relied on incarceration and what that may mean for those counties in the coming years.
