Blueprint for Smart Justice Hawai‘i - ACLU, 2019 

7 days ago

Blueprint for Smart Justice Hawai’i is part of the ACLU’s 50-state campaign to identify state-specific strategies to reduce mass incarceration. In Hawai’i, where one in five people who are incarcerated are in pretrial justice status and money bond is assigned in 88 percent of cases (and posted only 44 percent of the time), the report includes pretrial reforms as part of its strategies. Specifically, the report calls for “enhancing speedy trial rights, expanding access to counsel, and expanding mandatory cite and release policies — and limit pretrial detention to the rare case where a person poses a serious, clear threat to another person.”
