We are happy to share that Attorney Deandra M. Grant was a guest contributor to Attorney at Law Magazine Dallas. Her article, titled ‘COVID Implications for the Criminal Justice System,’ appeared in Vol. 8 Issue No. 1 of the publication and was posted online on March 10, 2021.
The article discusses how the COVID pandemic has changed the handling of criminal cases and how it may take years to get things flowing smoothly again. Currently in Texas, criminal jury trials have been postponed until April 1st and may be pushed back even more.
Attorney Grant also discusses the challenges encountered in matters where face-to-face interactions are allowed. Specifically, she talks about the difficulties of reading facial cues of jurors and others who – because of safety precautions – must wear masks during proceedings.
