Criminal Justice Reform in Colorado Gets Bipartisan Support
"This legislative session, Herod would like to restore voting rights to individuals who have served time and are now out on parole. She would also like to reduce certain drug charges from felonies to misdemeanors. Additionally, Herod aims to remove bail costs for those charged with minor offenses that, under the current system, cannot afford to return home with their families. Other bills the Democrat from Denver has sponsored include one that would provide free tampons to women in custody, and another that would prevent potential employers from asking about a person’s criminal history."
"Herod said she was inspired to sponsor these bills because she is most interested in fighting for the underdogs."
