With a low crime rate and well-funded cadre of prosecutors and public defenders, Santa Clara County should be able to advance felony cases efficiently through the criminal justice system.
But in a report issued this week, the Santa Clara County Civil Grand Jury found that the county took longer than any other in the state to resolve felony cases, leaving accused suspects in jail longer than necessary, at great cost to taxpayers.
The main reason? A “culture of complacency” that tolerates delay, the grand jury said. In short, the court are run by losers.
