In this edition of East Idaho Newsmakers, we take a closer look at the legal system in Idaho.
Nate Eaton sits down with Magistrate Judge Michelle Mallard and District Judge Dane Watkins to talk about the differences in their duties, what happens when someone is charged with a crime and how judges determine appropriate sentences.
We also discuss the specialty courts in Idaho and options judges have when it comes to dealing with a person who is convicted of a crime.
Watch the video above to see the entire conversation.
