08-15-2016 17:23

Because pretrial detention has deleterious effects on client outcomes and disproportionately affects the poor and minorities, the American Council of Chief Defenders' (ACCD) policy statement urges a new commitment by all criminal justice stakeholders to ensure fair and appropriate pretrial release decision‐making. The key action steps outlined for defenders include identifying areas of improvement in their local pretrial release practices, implementing pretrial national standards and best practices, developing collaboration amongst local criminal justice stakeholders to improve pretrial practices, and developing effective pretrial litigation strategies.
