The harmful consequences of pre-trial detention

Thanks to Margaret Johnson for highlighting this new article on the harmful effects of pre-trial detention. If you’re too poor to post bail you get detained. And people who get detained are more likely to get convicted, receive longer sentences and become involved in the criminal justice system. The article concludes with suggestions for better approaches to pre-trial justice.

    Hello. Whenever I click on the link to this article, I get sent to my gmail account. I can’t seem to open the link. Could someone from the SPD post the source of this article so that I can google it? Thank you for your efforts!
