Off Paper – Episode 14: The Case of the Addicted Bank Robber: How the FJC and Harvard are Educating the Courts

A transcript of this podcast is available at https://www.fjc.gov/sites/default/files/Transcript_FJC_OffPaper14.pdf

Host Mark Sherman talks with Judge Nancy Gertner (ret.) of Harvard Law School, Dr. Francis Shen and Dr. Judith Edersheim of Massachusetts General Hospital’s Center for Law, Brain, and Behavior, and FJC education attorney Cassandra Snyder about how a unique educational initiative developed by the FJC and Harvard is helping judges, pretrial services officers, and probation officers think through, in a science-informed way, the complex issues they confront every day, and develop alternatives that might serve as an antidote to the revolving door of the criminal justice system.

Off Paper: The Criminal Justice Podcast from the FJC focuses on issues of federal criminal justice and, more specifically, how those issues affect probation and pretrial services officers and their clients. When an individual has finished serving any time and successfully completed release requirements, that person is “off paper.”
