Due to Coronavirus, these are certainly unique and uncertain times that we find ourselves in today. Who could have imagined even a month ago that our entire way of life would suddenly be upended, businesses and activities that we enjoy on a daily basis suddenly being canceled and closed, all because of an unseen enemy threatening our health and livelihoods?
Well, the coronavirus has done exactly that. And for folks who find themselves in the unfortunate circumstance of being in jail during this time, their concerns for their own health and safety are even more warranted than usual. This is where legal experts such as the team at the Williams Litigation Group become crucial in guaranteeing your own personal wellbeing.
Unique Requirements in Unprecedented Times
This all leads to the fact that that some places, including numerous areas in New York have realized the need to release those arrested and accused of minimal offenses in order to reduce the spread of COVID-19 among the jail population. If you or someone you care about finds themselves in this type of situation, it is imperative to contact someone who is actively working on getting these types of people released from incarceration.
Health and Wellbeing are Basic Human Rights
The foundational argument for all of this is the fact that everyone, whether they have been accused of a crime or not, deserves the right to stay safe and healthy at all times, especially during a global health pandemic such as what we are seeing with the spread of the coronavirus. While this highly infectious virus is difficult to contain even out in the world, the conditions which exist inside jails make them a virtual petri dish for infecting others.
Safeguarding Yourself and Those Around You
The experts at the Williams Litigation Group understand that desperate times call for desperate measures. No one arrested on minor charges like third-degree felonies, criminal traffic offenses, misdemeanors, county and municipal ordinance violations, non-violent offenses, or other low-level crimes should have to stay inside cramped and confined spaces which do nothing but increase the spread of such an incredibly infectious virus. If you are over the age of 60 and/or suffer from serious chronic medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes, or lung disease, you are at high risk of fatality from the Coronavirus. Get in touch with your loved one today and contact the attorneys at Williams Litigation Group to see if you are a good candidate for an early release as more and more cities and counties begin to move in that direction.
