Ask your county attorney what steps they are taking to reduce prison and jail populations to protect the health of those incarcerated and others during the COVID-19 crisis, specifically:
- What steps have you taken to limit pretrial detention (holding people in jail before trial when they are legally innocent) during this crisis?
- What steps have you taken to put in place a review-and-release process for cases over the last 30 days where bail was ordered?
- What steps have you taken to suspend the collection of fines and fees for those who may be unable to pay due to the current crisis?
- What is your position on dismissing outright low-level offense cases?
