Unequal Treatment: Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Miami-Dade Criminal Justice - ACLU Florida Greater Miami 2018 

07-24-2018 17:00

Analyzing data on all adult criminal defendants from 2010 to 2015, this report examines individual and neighborhood racial and ethnic disparities across multiple decision points within Miami-Dade County’s criminal justice system including: arrest, bond and pretrial detention, charging and disposition, and sentencing. The analysis uncovered racial and ethnic disparities at each of these decision points. It also found disparities at every decision point that, regardless of ethnicity, result in disadvantages for Black defendants and neighborhoods while resulting in advantages for White defendants and neighborhoods.

This report demonstrates that race and ethnicity shape Miami-Dade County’s criminal justice system.
