Changing The Justice System In Vermont

Dec 29, 2014

Vermont is about to implement a major change in the way people who have been arrested move through the justice system. Pretrial risk assessment services will help judges and prosecutors decide whether to set bail, or to send people to treatment, instead of jail.

On the next Vermont Edition, we’ll learn about the new pretrial services and how they will work with Annie Ramniceanu, director of pretrial services at the Department of Corrections, and Judge Brian Grearson, the incoming Chief Administrative Judge for Trial Courts in Vermont.

Also on the program, we'll hear a performance from Vermont punk group Rough Francis.

Broadcast live on Tuesday, December 30 at noon; rebroadcast at 7 p.m.
