“Mass Incarceration in Wisconsin”
Marquette University Professor O’Hear is a nationally recognized authority on criminal punishment. He will explore the causes of mass incarceration in Wisconsin and consider whether current imprisonment levels might be reduced without harming public safety.
Several promising policy reforms could bring down the prison numbers and lessen burdens on taxpayers and families.
Host: Jerry Fredrickson
