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.
