Would you like to learn more about how a criminal case moves through the system as it goes to trial? Do you want to better understand the many decision points, legal guidelines, and constraints?
If so, please join us on Tuesday, March 27th, for our monthly meeting!
Our guest speaker will be SW Precinct Liaison Attorney, Joe Everett. He will educate us about the structure and organization of the criminal court system, as well as talk about his role as an advisor to the SW Precinct.
The criminal court system can be complicated in structure and jurisdiction — for example, is it a City of Seattle court or a King County court?
Come hear why a judge might decide to release a defendant on their own recognizance, even when they have a long history of criminal behavior.
Learn about what we as community members can do to help make things better!
As always, we’ll also have an update from SW Precinct Commander, Captain Pierre Davis.
Here’s the detailed agenda.
