False Equivalence: Local, State and Federal Detainees - PJI 2018 

02-06-2018 15:46

To conduct a meaningful comparison of federal and state pretrial detention outcomes, researchers at the Pretrial Justice Institute reviewed the law, research, and data, and spoke with members of the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts (AOC), the agency providing a broad range of support to federal courts. The findings, articulated in this issue brief, show that high detention rates are not an inevitable outcome of moving away from money bond; many federal jurisdictions have seen appropriately low rates of detention, and some state and local jurisdictions have also successfully moved away from money bond without an increase in detention.
