Policing Misdemeanors: Is Our Current System Enough ... Or Too Much?


Do misdemeanor arrests have life-changing consequences? Join us for a virtual panel discussion on the harmful effects misdemeanor arrests and charges have on individuals, ranging from employment opportunities to police brutality to immigration consequences.

Our panelists will explore the ways in which we can change our system through the mass misdemeanor reform movement. Hear from: Prof. Jenny Roberts, American University; Washington County Deputy State's Attorney Joe Michael; and Assistant Maryland Public Defender Shawn Gaither. Baltimore Law Prof. Jose Anderson will moderate the discussion.
