Ehrlich To Speak At Criminal Justice Symposium

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Former Maryland Governor Robert Ehrlich will deliver the keynote address at the 2013 Bipartisan Criminal Justice Reform symposium hosted by the Catholic University Law Review.

Friday's conference will address issues such as police practices, prison overcrowding, sentencing reform, decriminalization and diversion, clemency, and successful re-entry into society.

Officials say the symposium's goal is to generate bipartisan support for sustainable criminal justice reforms.

The event will be held at the Columbus School of Law on the campus of Catholic University of America.

Ehrlich, a Republican, served as governor of Maryland from 2003 to 2007.

He currently works as senior counsel for King & Spalding law firm.
