A New Vision for Pretrial Justice in the United States - ACLU 2019 

3 days ago

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) lays out its proposals for reforming pretrial justice, including: reducing the harms of pretrial process; eliminating pretrial profiteering; creating a wide net of people eligible for mandatory and presumptive pre-booking release with no conditions; facilitating speedy individualized release hearings — distinct from “detention hearings” — with necessary due process protections; narrowly limiting who can be jailed before conviction; ensuring robust appeal rights and speedy trial protections for persons who are jailed as well as for those released on liberty-restricting conditions; avoiding/eliminating the use of actuarial algorithms in pretrial systems; and eliminating wealth-based discrimination.
