Takura Nyamfukudza and Fellow Panelists Discuss the "180 Day Rule" with Michigan Radio
April 20th, 2022
Michigan Radio recently called on Takura Nyamfukudza to speak community members and loved ones of the approximately 120 inmates who have been held pretrial at the Wayne County Jail. Takura’s work on the Michigan Joint Task Force on Jail and Pretrial Incarceration positioned him to talk about legislation that is currently pending to ensure that trials – with a few exceptions – take place within 18 months. Takura and his fellow panelists discussed the meaning of the “180 Day Rule” and cleared up misconceptions about people’s rights on this front.
