With the public discourse that arose from last year’s election of the Thurston County Prosecutor, our listeners have asked us to keep tabs on issues of criminal justice in our area. We interviewed the recently re-elected prosecutor, Jon Tunheim, as well as the Director of Public Defense, Patrick O’Connor, to track some of the ongoing issues that have been in need of reform. We talked about case flow management, diversion, opioid response, bail reform, and how people can track the progress of a changing system.
