Question 1

What criteria are most important for voters to use in evaluating judicial candidates?

No se proporcionó respuesta.
How can courts and judges better assure that all people have adequate access to legal help and the legal system?
Respuesta de Steven Schreiner:

The presence of the Public Defender and Alternate Public Defender's offices ensure that all indigent defendants have representation. In cases in which a conflict arises, a judge can assure an indigent defendant has representation by appointing counsel where appropriate.

Most defendants are held in County jail before trial because they are not able, due to low income or homelessness, to secure bail imposed by the Court at their arraignment.  Does California’s system of imposing bail on defendants need reform?  If so, what would you recommend?
Respuesta de Steven Schreiner:

Recent case law has addressed the issue of low income defendants being unable to secure bail due to economic circumstances.  Courts now must consider this issue, and balance it with the need to assurance the defendant's appearance at trial and public safety.  As a judge I would take all these issues into consideration in determining whether or not to deviate from the bail schedule.
