Hot Topic Dinner
State Attorney and Public Defender
Their jobs require them to be adversaries. Can they ever be friends?
They both say they want the same thing: justice. But is it the same "justice"?

What is necessary for the public defender to do an appropriate job in terms of staff and caseload?

What is "restorative justice"? Does it work?
Is the state attorney interested only in convictions?

What will you differently from your predecessor and what will you do the same?

Come to the February Hot Topic dinner and learn the answers to these questions and more as we meet our new State Attorney, Jack Campbell, and our new Public Defender, Andy Thomas.
