KPTZ Compass: Discussing State v. Blake with public defender Richard Davies and prosecutor James Kennedy

This week on the Compass, we talk with Jefferson County Prosecutor James Kennedy and then with Public Defender Richard Davies about the effects of the ruling, and for their opinions on how replacement legislation should differ from the rejected law, or if there should even be a replacement.
