Jacqueline Goodman lobbies CA lawmakers for legislative change

As a leading voice in the California Attorneys for Criminal Justice (CACJ), attorney Jacqueline Goodman is committed to preserving the rights of those accused of crimes, while also ensuring that the law is carried out in a just and fair manner. A recent visit to Sacramento established attorney Goodman's views when it comes to criminal justice legislation. She and her delegation lobbied to gain awareness about a collection of nine pending criminal defense bills, the first of which is Assembly Bill 597 - Flash Incarceration

Flash incarceration involves placing a person in a county jail for up to ten days as a result of a probation violation or a mandatory supervision violation. While this practice was originally slated to end January 1, 2021, new legislation has proposed that it be extended until January 1, 2023. Attorney Goodman and the rest of the CACJ delegation opposes this extension if no amendments are made, as they don't believe it's in the best interest of the criminal justice system. For example, even a minor parole violation could result in a person being incarcerated. This could easily lead to a loss of income if the person's job is jeopardized by the time away from work.

Gainful employment is a major component of reintegrating into society after going through the criminal justice system, and without an income, it's very easy for someone to slip back into criminal wrongdoing. Attorney Goodman wants her clients to have the best chance of a happy and successful life after they've paid their debt. That's why she's as passionate about advocating for individual clients as she is advocating for criminal law reform.
