"Paid for by Mary Jo for New Mexico, Amanda Romero, Treasurer"

Justice Issues

  • We need to restore adequate funding for our judicial system; courts, district attorneys, and public defenders.
  • I vigorously oppose the privatization of prisons, which are inherently a governmental responsibility. Privatization opens the system to very expensive abuses as the prison companies lobby for stiffer sentences.
  • I believe in sentencing equity. The sentence must fit the circumstances of the crime.
  • I support the restorative justice program which seeks to change the justice system from a retribution system to a restorative system for appropriate crimes.
  • I support police accountability programs to be sure they are interacting with our communities appropriately. I also support police wearing lapel cams, for the protection of both our community and the police themselves.
