DA’s @ staff meeting
December 5 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
DA’s office (DA Matt Van Houten, Deputy DA Andrew Bonavia, ADA Diane Lama and hopefully ADA Emily Quinlin as well) will join our staff meeting to talk with us about the upcoming 2020 changes in discovery rules as well as bail reform. These two issues are likely to have implications in our work with victims. Client services staff and ed staff will benefit from knowing more about these issues.
We need to incorporate this information into how we talk with victims about the criminal justice system, why an offender may not be in jail or arrested immediately, etc.
If you are not ed staff or client services staff, please feel free to stay or excuse yourself, up to you! I’m sure it will be a lively discussion 🙂
