The New Jersey Exit, with Christine Norbut Beyer

On this week’s episode we discuss another “Family Miranda” bill becoming law, this time in Arizona; a case against caseworkers headed to verdict; and a damning statement on “Shaken Baby Syndrome.”

Christine Norbut Beyer, commissioner of the New Jersey Department of Children and Families, joins to discuss her state’s exit from court oversight after many years, how the system has changed since her early career as a social worker, and her thoughts on Miranda-style warnings for parents at the point of investigation.
