01-29-2020 16:42

This article employs a cost-benefit analysis of pretrial detention as a framework for designing a better bail system. The author, Crystal Yang, argues that "jurisdictions develop “net benefit” assessment instruments by predicting both risk and harm for each defendant in order to move closer toward a bail system that maximizes social welfare."
