Issue 37 August 30

This week we welcomed Charlie Cofer, Public Defender as he spoke to us of the innovations the Criminal Justice System underwent when the Florida Supreme Court suspended all court functions in response to Covid-19. Due to jails being severely over capacity, non-violent misdemeanor inmates were released and video conference capabilities for court proceedings were added. Court has since been running pretty well, however there are still several phases to follow before it will be back to fully functioning.
