In 2016 PJI helped fund a small research project at George Mason University’s (GMU) Department of Criminology, Law and Society and the Center for Evidence-Based Crime Policy to learn what people who go through the system had to say about their motivations and the impact of the system. The researchers surveyed two groups: inmates who were in jail pending trial and those who had been released pretrial under supervision. Key Findings: -Money is the primary factor keeping people in jail before trial, -Money bail has a negative impact on families, and -Arrested people have low confidence in money bail and consider it unfair.
