Local criminal justice officials, tasked with implementing Assembly Bill 109, blasted county leaders last week for what the officials consider to be a lack of support and unnecessary roadblocks.

“It’s a disgrace,” Superior Court Judge Ira Kaufman said. “We take two steps forward and three steps back all the time. Right now it’s just business as usual in the county. And it’s a very expensive way to do business.”
