From the press release:
Efforts to improve the pretrial justice system while protecting public safety are working in Bernalillo County, according to a study released Friday.
University of New Mexico researchers found that a large majority of defendants committed no new crimes while released pending trial and they returned to court for required hearings.
The study analyzed 6,392 felony cases in Bernalillo County courts from July 1, 2017 to March 31, 2019. The UNM Institute of Social Research conducted the study for Bernalillo County.
