TCJC provides information about an indigent defense workshop next week at the capitol which will include a lot of familiar faces preparing for the session:
TCJC's email provided new resources and flyers related to issues covered at the recent Senate Criminal Justice/Education Committee meeting on school discipline. And they linked to the group's written testimony on prescription drugs produced for the hearing covered here by Grits.On Tuesday, November 13, the Texas Indigent Defense Commission is holding a FREE workshop on the 83rd State Legislature (2013) and recent developments in defense. Speakers will include TCJC’s own Dr. Ana Yáñez-Correa, as well as Judge Sharon Keller, Jim Bethke, Vikrant Reddy, Andrea Marsh, and Jim Allison.DATE: November 13, 2012Click here to download an agenda for the workshop, which includes information about registering for the event.
TIME: 10AM – 12PM
LOCATION: Texas Capitol Building, Extension Auditorium
TCJC recently issued survey results in which they questioned both parolees and parole officers about the process, about which Grits may have more to say later. The group also "created a flyer on the inmate transfer process, outlining particular types of transfers and eligibility requirements for each." And they refer us to a new page on their mercifully redesigned website titled Tools for System-Involved Adults which will be a welcome boon to its target audience. Good stuff, all around.
