Criminal justice series: Reform from within

Our criminal justice series continues in a roundtable with a judge, a county attorney and a public defender.

U.S. District Judge John R. Tunheim, Washington County Attorney Pete Orput, and Assistant Hennepin County Public Defender Maria Mitchell discussed bail, plea bargains and the use of clemency.

This conversation is the third in a series on criminal justice. Throughout the month of January, MPR News with Kerri Miller will host discussions on different facets of the justice system. Part 1: The future of private prisons
