UNL: Recent Changes to Criminal Law in Nebraska – Effective Reform or Pandora’s Box?
Tell a Friend About This EventTell a Friend
 

Nebraska criminal law has undergone sweeping changes in the past two years with the passage of LB-605 and its progeny. Billed as “prison reform”, the new laws not only dramatically reduce sanctions for criminal conduct , but also increase the burdens on jails, probation and parole departments. Additionally, they may have an indirect, unforeseen impact on prosecutor charging decisions, plea negotiations and disparate criminal caseloads between County and District Courts.

When: Thursday, October 20, 2016
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM CT
Where: The Black Crow

Recent Changes to Criminal Law in Nebraska – Effective Reform or Pandora’s Box?

Thursday, October 20, 2016
4:00 – 5:00  p.m.
The Black Crow
405 Court Street
Beatrice, Nebraska

Nebraska criminal law has undergone sweeping changes in the past two years with the passage of LB-605 and its progeny. Billed as “prison reform”, the new laws not only dramatically reduce sanctions for criminal conduct , but also increase the burdens on jails, probation and parole departments.  Additionally, they may have an indirect, unforeseen impact on prosecutor charging decisions, plea negotiations and disparate criminal caseloads between County and District Courts.   LB-605 was signed into law in May 2015.  This presentation will provide a one-year look-back at the specifics of the changes to the criminal justice system, review their impact after a year and discuss potential as yet unforeseen consequences.

Speaker: UNL Law Professor Steve Schmidt
