The hour-long show covers many topics with an emphasis on:

  • barriers to reentry;
  • lack of housing/employment opportunities;
  • excessive sentencing; and
  • the need to enact legislation that would expunge some arrest records.

Both attorneys discuss Sex Offender Registration in detail and the need to move away from the “one size fits all approach” that is used in New Mexico and most other states. Mr. Porter attended our national conference and mentioned some of what he learned regarding practices in other states. Also, Mr. Porter regularly contributes to our monthly newsletter. In this month’s issue he will respond to a question regarding whether or not a person must admit their crime to be granted parole.
