What are some of the most significant challenges facing Kentucky’s judicial system and how do you propose to address them?
Significant challenges are the opiod crisis, neighborhood violence, jail overcrowding, equal justice for all people who come before the Court. The bench is making strides in offering alternatives to jail for drug addicts. Violence in neighborhoods I believe is driven by the drug trade and can only be solved by improved educational and job opportunities for young people so they can see a successful life in front of them, jail overcrowding may be addressed by alternative incarceration methods and rehabilitation programs. And currently, there is a trend to make changes in the way that bail is set so that indigent individuals will not sit in jail simply because they cannot afford to make bond.
