Judge Eugene Hyman JD ’77 wrote an op-ed for The Recorder on Proposition 20, which would lessen or reverse several of California’s recently implemented criminal justice reforms. Read the op-ed.
“It may be generally true that initiatives like Props. 47 and 57 have challenges. But imperfect laws should be fixed, not bulldozed. To address these flaws, proponents of Prop. 20 should go to the legislature to make their case and get the laws modified, rather than ask voters for a complete reversal of course on the reforms they’ve overwhelmingly approved.”
