Podcast 24: Ex Post Facto (Part 1)

We are continuing our coverage of Article 1, Section 10 of the Michigan Constitution. Remember, there are technically three provisions which make up this one Section. Before, we covered Bills of Attainder. Now we’re going to address Ex Post Facto laws. These laws are prohibited because, by and large, the make actions criminal which were NOT criminal at the time they were committed. But the key to an actual ex post facto law entails 4 designations. We will talk about them and when laws are (but mostly aren’t) Ex Post Facto, thus unconstitutional.

This podcast is Part 1 of 2.
