From Karren's campaign website:
|“||When I ran for office years ago, my promise was to make the courts accessible, efficient, and responsive to our community. I want to make it easy for well-intentioned, hard-working people to do the right thing....My having sentenced hundreds of abusive men to jail for terroristic threatening or assault against a woman or child, is proof of my no tolerance mentality concerning crimes against women and children....My having required thousands of hours of community service is proof enough that I believe criminals owe and should repay their debt to society. At the same time, however, I provide those defendants who cannot afford to pay their fines and costs with a rational way to pay their debts to society through community service. - Brad Karren||”|
