New videos help the public better understand criminal law and procedures

Thanks to a series of community education videos produced by the Mound City Bar Association, Missourians can gain a better understanding about some areas of criminal law and procedure.

The Mound City Bar Association is based in St. Louis. Kendra Howard, president of the local bar, said the organization understands recent events have left the community confused about some areas of criminal law and procedure. Howard added the new community education videos will serve to help clear up any misunderstandings about different aspects of criminal law and procedure.

The new videos feature members of the Mound City Bar Association explaining an array of criminal law procedures and penalties, including how a grand jury works, expungements and different felony crimes. Each video also highlights the importance of knowing your rights. Below is one of the Mound City Bar Association videos describing how a grand jury works. The full roster of the new videos are available on both the Mound City Bar Association’s website and the local bar’s YouTube Channel. Howard noted brochures on the same topics will soon be available.

The Mound City Bar Association is one of the oldest black bar associations west of the Mississippi River and is an affiliate chapter of the National Bar Association, the premier professional organization for African-American attorneys. The organization’s objectives include improving the administration of justice and providing service to the community. Learn more about the Mound City Bar Association through its website here.
