Navigating The Criminal Justice System With DR JRenee

Most citizens and their families have no idea what they can do to help their a loved one that has been arrested or charged with a crime. What is an arraignment? Should I bail them out? How should they conduct themselves in jail and court? These are questions many of us don’t think about until something bad happens. Advocating for someone in custody

Host Jessica Thomas talks with Dr JRenee, Professor, Author and occasional host of Jaws of Justice Radio about her book Navigating The Criminal Justice System: A Guide For Anyone Going Through The System And The People Who Love Them. The book is based on her own experiences as a troubled youth, the issues she dealt with as a single parent and her subsequent studies.

Exoneration and The Lack Of Compensation In Missouri

As the number of exonerations of wrongly convicted citizens grows the issue of how do we as a society compensate someone for years behind bars when their innocence is proven and they return to society. Some states have developed a financial formula in an attempt to make the person whole. Some states only compensate those who have been exonerated by DNA. In other cases it takes a court case to get any kind of compensation.

Host Latahra Smith talks with two Missouri exonerees, Reggie Griffin and Anthony Williams have yet to receive compensation from the state for the years they spent behind bars. They will talk about their struggle to get their lives back on track and the need for a conviction integrity unit in the state of Missouri.
