County Prosecutor Candidates Talk Diversion, Overcharging: Over 750 people attended Greater Cleveland Congregations Forum

Fairmount Temple’s 750-seat congregation hall was filled to capacity at Monday’s Greater Cleveland Congregations’ forum for county prosecutor candidates.

Congregants from 40 churches and synagogues gathered to see the five candidates answer to how they would support the organization’s priorities if elected.

The GCC outlined four topics that they wanted candidates to address: preventing juveniles from waiving their right to an attorney, overcharging defendants with crimes, racial disparities in the justice system and adult and juvenile diversion programs.
