Overcrowding at Cook County Jail


Cook County President Toni Preckwinkle and Tom Dart have a new plan to ease the overcrowding at Cook County Jail. Carol Marin and her guests take a closer look at how they are trying to reverse the chronic problems with the Cook County criminal system, including the resentencing of violent offenders from boot camp to prison, as well as the results of a meeting between Chief Judge Tim Evans, Preckwinkle, Dart and the Illinois Supreme Court to reduce the massive criminal case backlog. Joining Carol are Mick Dumke of Chicago Reader and Ali Abid, Criminal Justice Fellow for Chicago Appleseed Fund for Justice.
