DCJ In the News

DCJ’s Advocacy Director, Eugene Young, weighs in on what Governor-Elect John Carney means for criminal justice reform in Delaware in a recent Delaware Law Weekly article.

“‘This is going to be a tough year. The next couple years are going to be tough,” Young said.
‘We just want to make sure that a lot of the great work that’s been put into this plan
continues.'”

DCJ’s Adult Victim Services Program Coordinator, Nikki Kress, was recently interviewed by Delaware Public Media. Kress reported that in 2015, only 10 of her 68 cases were related to fraud. That number has jumped to 32 in 2016. Learn more about the trend here.
