As police start to focus attention away from low-level offenses because of coronavirus, what is the impact on the entire criminal justice system?
Coronavirus is impacting every aspect of life. As more and more police officers are getting infected, departments are trying to limit both the public and the officers’ exposure to the disease. To accomplish that goal, they have instructed police to act on only essential and serious cases, disregarding many low-level victim-less offenses. This could mean someone caught for drug paraphernalia or speeding might get off hook more easily. Time will tell if this could lead to a permanent relaxation of laws, similar to a Portugal or Netherlands. If you or a loved one is dealing with any criminal charges, go to any of our locations in Lake Havasu City, Tempe, Bullhead City, AZ, or Las Vegas, NV. Or give us a call at 833-854-8181.
