Carolyn Madden and Kathy Friedrichs discuss “The Prosecutor’s Office in Washtenaw County: Why You Should Care” at the May 6, 2020, monthly brown bag lunch of the Dispute Resolution Center (DRC) in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
This excerpt just includes the answers to the question: “What does Restorative Justice mean to you? And how would that help the community?” It is answered first by Arianne Slay, then Eli Savit, and finally Hugo Mack.
The three current candidates for Washtenaw County Prosecutor, to be voted on in the August 2020 Democratic party primary, respond to questions from WHPR radio 88.1 “Heart to Hearts” program co-host Nate Frazier as well as a few audience questions at the end. This discussion was held on October 19, 2019, at the county’s Learning Resource Center in front of a live audience of at least 100 people.
The presentation, panel discussion, and question-answer session addressed issues such as cash bail, use of restorative justice practices, and the role of prosecutors.
Guest Speaker: Michigan Representative David LaGrand
Prior to his position in the Michigan House, Rep. LaGrand served 8 years as Kent County Assistant Prosecutor.
