This is a link to an abstract. A study of a Midwest Urban County found that judicial discretion had important ramifications for jail populations. Looking at the behaviors of different judges, the study found that in many instances, a single judge accounted for a significant portion of variation in detaining people charged with nonviolent offenses, people charged with civil offenses (non-payment of child support) and length of incarceration.
