Make your plans now to join The Haggard Law Firm‘s Michael Haggard from December 5th to the 7th in Portland, Oregon for the 2017 National Crime Victims Bar Association’s National Conference, Civil Actions for Criminal Acts. Haggard, the organization’s President-elect will be among the speakers during the conference.
The Haggard Law Firm’s Managing Partner’s topic: Do Governments Have Responsibility for the Bad Guys under Their Watch?
Haggard will lead the discussion about whether the government has a responsibility to properly and reasonably supervise parolees and persons who have been released on bail and awaiting trial? Many think that question should be answered in the affirmative. However, various states and jurisdictions across the United States prohibit victims of subsequent crimes committed by these persons from recovering for the government’s negligent supervision of these persons. This presentation seeks to discuss the various laws across the United States and what it means for victims of crimes committed by these persons.
