Fresh on the heels of abolishing cash bail in California, Governor Jerry Brown signed several more criminal justice reform bills into law over the weekend. The suite of new measures include the release of police body camera footage within 45 days of an incident, greater transparency of police personnel documents and new limits on who can be charged for murder, which will enable hundreds of current inmates to petition for shorter sentences. Forum discusses California's newest criminal justice laws and their possible effects.
