Pandemic Policymaking and Changed Outcomes in Criminal Courts

Virtual Event

April 18, 2023 · 11:00 am - 11:30 am

About the Program

California’s criminal courts quickly adopted policies to address COVID-19; but uneven adoption around the state affected who might face those policies. On April 18, PPIC researcher Heather Harris will present findings from a report examining how policies such as remote hearings contributed to differences in criminal convictions and sentencing, and discuss how these outcomes may influence whether such hearings will continue.

This research and event are supported with funding from the PPIC Corporate Circle and the PPIC Donor Circle.
