Joshua B. Hoe joins us for a thrilling ride on the week’s news and issues. Josh is the host of Decarceration Nation, a podcast about radically changing the way America does criminal justice.
Discussions include: Bill Cosby verdict sends ‘strong message’ to victims, NJ experts say; Criminal Legal News: the sex offender registry – it’s not what you think; Maine towns allowed to ban sex offenders from parks and fields; Missouri Supreme Court hears case on prosecutor who targeted letter writers in sexual assault case; Missouri public defenders are overloaded with hundreds of cases while defendants wait in jail; homeless sex offenders are getting kicked out of their south Florida encampment–now what?; The Court of Appeals believes the victim (even when the jury doesn’t).
