Speeding Up Trials Safely
KUNM Call In Show Thu. 3/10 8a: New Mexico's Supreme Court created a new set of rules aimed at clearing a backlog of cases in Bernalillo County's criminal justice system. But there's been pushback from folks who say the new deadlines are tough to meet.
What do you think? Have you ever waited in jail for months before a trial? Have you been hurt by someone who got off easy under the new rules? We'd like to hear from you! Email email@example.com or call in live during the show.
