Community Supervision of Dangerous Mentally Ill Offenders

A task force convened by the King County Prosecuting Attorney and the Department of Corrections Secretary released a 160 page report on the mental health and criminal justice systems: Examining the Tools in the Toolbox A Review of Community Supervision of Dangerous Mentally Ill Offenders. A news story on the task force report and investigation, and the tragic circumstances that led to its formation, is in today's Seattle Post-Intelligencer. It reports that today "King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg will present 64 wide-ranging 'concepts for reform' to the Senate Human Services and Corrections Committee."

Thanks: Peggy Jarrett.

Peggy posted this on Gallagher Blogs (our law library blog), and suggested that I tell readers of Trial Ad about it too. Good idea, and done.

If you haven't already, you might want to visit Gallagher Blogs directly -- we post an interesting variety of tips, news, and resources related to law and legal research, and you could find it another good blog to follow.
