Current justice system a bipartisan problem

State Senator Andre Jacque believes there are a number of aspects of the current justice system that should be addressed to help prisoners readjust to civilian life after their time is served. The vice chair of the Senate Committee on Judiciary and Public Safety Committee, he says he has already had several conversations with secretary of the state Department of Corrections Kevin Carr about finding the most appropriate setting for arrested individuals. He believes addressing issues like public defender pay, prosecutor shortages, and follow-up in treatment courts are also important.

Senator Jacque says he will introduce legislation asking for more resources for the court system in the near future.
