New Jersey Courts 2018 Report to the Governor and Legislature on Criminal Justice Reform (2019) 

04-12-2019 10:40

From the Executive Summary: New Jersey has moved away from a system that relied heavily on monetary bail. Two years into its existence, Criminal Justice Reform (CJR) has begun to remove many of the inequities created by the prior approach to pretrial release. At the same time, court appearance rates for CJR defendants remain high while the rate of alleged new criminal activity for CJR defendants remains low. CJR defendants are no more likely to be charged with a new crime or fail to appear in court than defendants released on bail under the old system.
