CNBC: Google, Koch Partner on Criminal Justice Reform

This post originally appeared at CNBC.

Koch Industries and Google have teamed up to take on criminal justice reform. Cohosting an event May 8 in Washington, D.C., the two influential networks are pushing for bail reform.

“Our desired state is that after people are arrested, there should be a risk assessment done, a determination if they are a risk to public safety,” said Mark Holden, general counsel and senior vice president of Koch Industries and chairman of the board of directors for Freedom Partners. A decision should be made after that, he continued, to decide whether that person should be detained and pay bail.
