District Attorney Andrea Harrington doesn't see her job as simply tossing people into jail cells.
Instead, she is seeking to create a culture and environment where causes such as drug or mental health problems are addressed in the community so the crimes don't happen again.
State Sen. Adam Hinds is looking to be at the forefront of pushing for criminal justice reform.
The freshman Senator hadn't been in office in the fall when dozens bills began relating to reform piled into the Legislator nor was he appointed to the judiciary committee. But, he's trying to elbow his way in to advocate for major overhauls of the system.
