Take Our Quiz: The Year in Criminal Justice

How well do you remember 2017’s biggest stories?

This past year was a little … tumultuous, and the world of criminal justice was no exception. When President Donald Trump took office, he and Attorney General Jeff Sessions quickly began undoing much of their predecessor’s efforts. Meanwhile, state legislatures and district attorneys offices made changes big and small to sentencing laws, prison policy and policing. Take our quiz to see how well you remember the big criminal justice stories of 2017. And if your score is less than stellar, you might want to sign up for our morning newsletter, Opening Statement. Our senior editor Andrew Cohen will make sure you’re up to speed on all things crime and punishment in 2018.
