This November, California voters are once again being asked to decide the future of the state's criminal justice system, and two initiatives currently on the ballot place us at a crossroads. Prop. 20 would roll back several criminal sentencing and supervision laws that were passed during the last decade, while Prop. 25 would institute algorithmic risk assessment tools in place of the established cash bail system to release detained suspects before their trials. Join a panel of experts from around the region as they discuss the potential impacts that these new measures would have on Californians here in the Bay Area and across the state.
