Evers names criminal-justice council

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Gov.-elect Tony Evers has put together a council to advise him on criminal-justice policy.

Evers announced the composition of the Public Safety and Criminal Justice Reform Policy Advisory Council on Monday.

The council will be composed of 30 people, including former state Supreme Court justices Louis Butler and Janine Geske; Rick Raemisch, executive director of the Colorado Department of Corrections and a former Wisconsin corrections secretary; attorney Dean Strang, who defended the convicted murderer Steven Avery; and several circuit court judges.

Evers has said he wants to cut Wisconsin’s prison population in half, end solitary confinement and give ex-convicts more help.
