The Globe follows up on the Herald's recent report on lesser crimes Democratic DA candidate Rachel Rollins says she would mostly have prosecutors not prosecute, and includes this nugget:
Many of the crimes on the list, including trespassing, shoplifting, and drug possession, typically lead to probation, rather than jail time, even if a defendant is charged multiple times, prosecutors and defense attorneys agree. Under Rollins’s plan, the offenses would be treated as civil infractions or dismissed outright.
Rollins is running against independent Michael Maloney in November.
