The Impact of Enhanced Sentencing Authority for Tribal Probation
View this webinar
Tuesday, May 20, 2014
3:00 – 4:30 pm (ET) [90 minute webinar]
The passage of the Tribal Law and Order Act of 2010 (TLOA) and the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 (VAWA) is altering the way tribal justice agencies process criminal and civil complaints through their courts. While guidance has been given to tribal courts in amending their policies and practices required for changes in jurisdiction and sentencing options, little guidance has been given to other justice agencies that will be impacted by these changes, such as probation.
This webinar will:
Discuss the anticipated impact of enhanced sentencing authority under TLOA and jurisdiction over non-Indians under VAWA for tribal probation officers.
Discuss the importance of reentry planning for tribal members who receive enhanced sentences.
Discuss how jurisdictions can work collaboratively to ensure successful reentry of tribal members back into their communities.
Discuss the plans the Tulalip Tribe is working to put into place for the return of tribal members sentenced under the tribes’ enhanced sentencing authority to the Bureau of Prisons Pilot Project.
