With Messaging Month on the University of Pretrial nearly over, we decided to take the occasion of Halloween to discuss some of the scary language that some people use to stall, or even to reverse, pretrial reform. First, we will shine a light on these terms. Then we’ll talk about what we find truly horrifying.

Pretrial reform doesn’t have to be scary. Resources like PJI and the University of Pretrial, an online community where pretrial stakeholders, experts, and knowledge come together, seek to remove the unknowns and shine light into darkened corners. If you know someone who needs reassurance about pretrial reform, send them our way.
