Default Aguascalientes prisons filling up, according to Supreme Court president

Aguascalientes Supreme Court President Juan Arturo Muñiz Candelas is expressing concern over the overcrowding in the state’s prison system. He reports that the prisons are currently 50% over capacity, underscoring the need for justice reform to expedite criminal proceedings. Nevertheless, he urged caution in implementing oral trials and the investigative procedures that accompany them, especially in the case of more serious crimes. Muñiz Candelas estimates that it will be at least three years before oral trials can be a reality in the state, citing the need for legislative approval, infrastructure development, and budgeting and training of personnel.
