This is now the Police State works. It’s the one thing Democrats and Republicans in California seem to agree on.
Justice partners in Alameda County say its new criminal case management system is a big failure that continues to screw with defendants’ lives despite best human efforts.
Since Alameda County Superior Court deployed Odyssey in August, it has caused an untold number of false arrests and false imprisonments, inaccurate court records, mischaracterized rap sheets and a host of other problems for defendants.
However, because most of the people sent to prison are poor, mentally ill, homeless, and people of color, no one is in a big hurry to change things.
About half of California’s county court systems use Odyssey, a Tyler Technologies product.
Enjoy your Police State.
