Criminal Justice Reform

Embedded in my ideas for a successful community that thrives economically well into the future is a belief in a justice system that is fair and equal to all citizens. As an attorney, I know that Virginia is long overdue to reassess the community-wide effects of a number of its criminal procedures.

I am also a strong proponent of a simpler process for the restoration of voting rights for offenders that have served their time and repaid their debt to society. We should be encouraging ex-offenders to engage civically and return to the workforce as productive members of the community.
