first_imgGov. Wolf Joins Legislators, Advocates for Virtual Event on One-Year Anniversary of Clean Slate Automatic Sealing SHARE Email Facebook Twitter June 30, 2020center_img Criminal Justice Reform,  Press Release Governor Tom Wolf participated in a virtual event today to mark the one-year anniversary of Clean Slate automatic record sealing in Pennsylvania. The governor joined a Zoom panel with legislators and advocates for the event sponsored by Community Legal Services, The Clean Slate Initiative, Justice Action Network and Center for American Progress.“On this one-year anniversary of clean slate implementation, we celebrate the countless lives this law has changed all across the commonwealth,” Gov. Wolf said. “I’m proud that Pennsylvania is leading the way in second chances and excited to see our Clean Slate law serve as a national model for commonsense, bipartisan criminal justice reforms.”In 2018, Pennsylvania was the first in the nation to enact Clean Slate legislation, which expands criminal record sealing to include more types of offenses, including some first-degree misdemeanors, which can be sealed by filing petitions.The law also created an automated computer process to seal arrests that did not result in convictions within 60 days, summary convictions after 10 years, and some second and third-degree misdemeanor convictions if there are no subsequent misdemeanor or felony convictions for a period of 10 years after the time of conviction. The automatic sealing provision went into effect on June 28, 2019.During its first year of implementation, Clean Slate in Pennsylvania has automatically sealed 35 million records.The virtual panel, moderated by Justice Action Network president and executive director Holly Harris, focused on the bipartisan approach of Clean Slate and additional criminal justice reforms the state has enacted as well as proposed legislation that expand and eliminate obstacles for Clean Slate that could increase the number of cases automatically sealed.Here are the Clean Slate numbers-to-date in Pennsylvania:36,735 Individuals have had Clean Slate applied to a misdemeanor conviction.1,148,696 Individuals have had Clean Slate applied to their record. That includes misdemeanor convictions, summary convictions and non-conviction dispositions.2,062,108 offense tracking numbers have had Clean Slate applied to that arrest. That includes misdemeanor convictions, summary convictions and non-conviction dispositions.For more information on Clean Slate or to seek help in accessing the program, visit mycleanslatepa.com.Ver esta página en español.last_img read more

SNAP! Govt agencies inventing numbers to meet targets on social issues

first_imgStuff co.nz 17 February 2016Family First Comment: Snap! This is what our report on child abuse and the failure of the smacking law last week said also: “The report cites Child Youth and Family’s statistics for child abuse and neglect as an example of particular concern, with a large gap between its recorded cases of abuse in 2014-15 and those recorded by police.”Government agencies are “inventing” new numbers and changing the definitions of targets to make their performance seem better, a damning report says.The Salvation Army says the organisations feel under pressure from the Government to come up with favourable results, creating an attitude where they “find any reason to celebrate success or progress”, regardless of their original goals.The charitable organisation’s State of the Nation report attacks the ways in which government agencies appear to be using targets, and the numbers behind them, in a “less than straightforward and reliable manner”.The report says agencies have been using a number of “subtle and ingenious approaches” to improve their performance against targets.They include changing the definitions behind indicators to make results appear better, “inventing new numbers” that are difficult to verify, and changing the way figures are reported without improving the reliability of information provided.“This can cause us to slip into a ‘moveable feast’ mentality, where we find any reason to celebrate success or progress, even though we have lost our sense of the purpose behind it all.”READ MORE: http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/76957685/government-agencies-inventing-numbers-to-meet-targets-says-reportlast_img read more

Lakers lose 99-85 to Spurs as Clarkson gets first career start

first_imgSAN ANTONIO — It did not take long for the Lakers to adjust to life without Kobe Bryant.With Bryant possibly out for the 2014-15 season because of a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder, Lakers coach Byron Scott appeared to immediately prioritized development over bottom-line results. With the Lakers losing 99-85 to the San Antonio Spurs on Friday at AT&T Center, there was little focus on the team’s season-high seventh consecutive defeat and its lack of answers for the Spurs’ Tony Parker (17 points), Kawhi Parker (15 points), Manu Ginobili (15 points) and Tim Duncan (14 points). Instead, most of the focus centered on Scott’s eighth starting lineup that featured rookie guard Jordan Clarkson, who posted a career-high 11 points on 5-of-9 shooting, four assists and one turnover in 28 minutes in his first career start. Yet, Scott maintained he would have started Clarkson over Ronnie Price and Jeremy Lin even if Bryant stayed healthy.“We haven’t just scrapped the season and said let’s just try to develop our young guys,” Scott said. “We are still going to try and win basketball games. That’s the bottom line.”The Lakers (12-32) did not satisfy the bottom line, though they furthered their chances to keep their top-five protected draft pick. The team has the NBA’s fourth-worst record. “I thought I’d give Ronnie more of a look,” Scott said. “I know what Jeremy can do. The next game, it might be different.”Either way, it became an inevitable storyline. Lin has averaged 10.5 points on 43.6-percent shooting along with 4.5 assists in 25.7 minutes per game this season. But Scott has lamented about Lin’s inconsistency with his aggressiveness and playmaking. Lin will also become a free agent after the Lakers acquired him in a salary dump from Houston.“He just has to keep doing the things he was doing when he was playing,” Scott said of Lin. “It’s not like I’m not going to play him again. It’s more of a case of changing the lineup.”As for Clarkson? After San Antonio opened the game with nine straight points, Clarkson scored the team’s first four on a 19-foot jumper and a layup. In the third quarter, Clarkson converted a three-point play on a 3-on-1 fast break. Clarkson also sat by his locker before the game watching film on his laptop. “I’m just going to come back and go to work next day,” Clarkson said. “If I get another opportunity, I’m just going to play hard and try to do the same thing and put together a good game and get a win.” But the Lakers found positive signs with Clarkson’s emergence after he averaged 4.9 points on 38.8 percent shooting in 12.2 minutes through 21 appearances.“I am very happy with the way Jordan played,” Scott said. “He just looked like he was very poised and the moment wasn’t too big for him.”This all took place in Clarkson’s hometown, where he previously starred as a three-year letter-winner at Wagner High School. “It means a lot,” said Clarkson, who had 10 to 15 family members watching. “Hopefully I’m in the league for 10 to 15 years and I can look back and say my first start was at home.”Meanwhile, Price went scoreless on four shot attempts in 19 minutes. Lin did not appear because of a coach’s decision, the first time that happened in three years. Lin talked to one reporter afterwards, though most of the media was not informed the Lakers’ locker room was open during Scott’s press conference.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

first_imgBy  Stephen DienerIn a short but historic press conference, President Trump shocked everyone by announcing his Presidential order to immediately open all houses of worship throughout the country, despite governor’s orders, and to deem them all as essential services.This includes all mosques, synagogues, and churches.Trump made this announcement during an unplanned press conference earlier this afternoon to a surprised press corps who did not expect to see him today.During the announcement, Trump said that he was disgusted by the actions of some governors to deem liquor stores and abortion clinics as essential services, but refuse to open churches at the same time. He said that the country needs more prayer, not less.He went on to say that if any governor has a problem that they can call him directly with their concerns, but he said he does not expect it to be a “productive call.”The President reiterated his order to have all houses of worship immediately opened before leaving the podium without taking any questions.last_img read more
