Wednesday, January 25, 2017 — Dr. Brad Myrstol, a faculty member of the UAA Justice Center and the Director of the Alaska Justice Information Center and the Alaska Justice Statistical Analysis Center, was interviewed by Alaska Dispatch News regarding the impact of Alaska’s criminal justice reforms that were included in SB91. The Alaska Justice Information Center is collaborating with the Alaska Judicial Council to assess the impact of these reforms. As Dr. Myrstol explained, it is too early to measure impacts. Dr. Myrstol further explained that it would be better to fully understand the impact of these reform efforts before making additional changes to these efforts.
