The Criminal Justice Section of the ABA

State's Attorney Kim Foxx from Cook County joins us on the podcast to discuss the role prosecutor's can have in creating reform within the criminal justice system. We discuss the 11 recommendations that were recently put forward by a group of Black female prosecutors, including Foxx, in a Politico op-ed. We cover a range of topics from declining to prosecute low-level offenses to banning no-knock warrant, investment of funds in community-led response programs, plea bargaining and more.
