David Onek & Stanford Three Strikes Project Co-Founder Michael Romano discuss the need for reform
Michael Romano, Co-Founder of the Stanford Three Strikes Project, discusses how the California Three Strikes law can lead to life sentences for people with minor offenses, how students in his project have helped a dozen such clients get released from prison after having their sentences reduced, and the need to reform Three Strikes so that it focuses on serious and violent offenders.
David Onek is the host of the Criminal Justice Conversations Podcast.
The Podcast, a co-production of the Berkeley Center for Criminal Justice and the Berkeley School of Journalism, features in-depth, thirty-minute interviews with a wide range of criminal justice leaders: law enforcement officials, policymakers, advocates, service providers, academics and others.
The Podcast can be heard on iTunes.
