Yakima Countys new pretrial release program seeing successYakima Countys new pretrial release program seeing success
A few years ago, an examination of the Yakima County Jail showed more than 60 percent of its inmates were awaiting trial. Officials started looking at how to reduce that percentage.In 2013, the Eastern Washington county was chosen as a site to test a Justice Department-affiliated initiative to reduce the number of people in its jail who had not yet been convicted. So far the results seem promising.Under the old system, Yakima County Superior Court Judge Richard Bartheld explained, he’d typically see those arrested in a first appearance the next “judicial day” after they’d been arrested. At that hearing, the arrested parties would appear on their own and answer some basic questions. Only rarely would they have an attorney.Then, usually based on little more than their answers, the prosecutor’s statements and what was in the preliminary police report, Bartheld would make a call on whether to release the defendant, set bail, or jail him.“One of my concerns as a judge in Yakima County was I wasn’t getting good information to make informed decisions on release decisions,” Bartheld said.
The national team manager believes his team has what it take to win the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup this summer in France.Phil Neville started working as England women national team manager in 2018.And he set his objectives very high, as he wants to win the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup with the Lionesses this summer in France.“It’s probably going to be the most open World Cup in terms of who’s going to win it. And we’re preparing to make sure we have to be at our best,” Neville was quoted by Sports Illustrated.“I said on day one I want to win the World Cup. That wasn’t me being arrogant or big-headed, that was the challenge I set myself and for my group of players.”“At Canada 2015, we came third. So progression is to get to the final, progression is to become better than third,” he added.Crouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“USA are the No. 1 favorites. You’ve got to say France are No. 2 because they’re the home nation.”“You can never rule out Germany – we played them in SheBelieves last year and they were physically a fantastic side,” he explained.“So we’ve got to be at our very best. But so too have USA, France, Germany.”“I went to an awful lot of games – I still do now, of course – and met a lot of people in the Women’s Super League (WSL), women’s football, the managers, players etc.”“But you’re judged on your results and I felt as if, the minute we beat France 4-1 in my first game, up until then people were waiting for me to fail,” he continued.“And then we beat France – with the style of football that we played – and all of a sudden, it had almost put it to bed. From then onwards it felt as if I could start relaxing a little bit and not have to prove to people every minute of every day that I’m going to know about women’s football.”
