Harris County, TX – "Criminal Justice Reform" FREE TO GO release blotter 9/10/17
What does Judge Rosenthal’s “soft on crime” policy look like in Harris County? See for yourself…
In a move that borders gross judicial overreach, the Texas judiciary continues to legislate from the bench – even as offenders are laughing and dancing their way out of the court room (literally) after being released and FREE TO GO unaccountable under Texas Pretrial Release.
Judges now use “risk assessment tools” – like the Arnold Foundation’s questionable risk assessment tool recently adopted in Harris County – to determine release decisions. The consequences of these actions can be deadly.
