Fourth Judicial District Pretrial Evaluation: Scale Validation Study

Group: Fourth Judicial District Research Division

URL: http://www.mncourts.gov/mncourtsgov/media/assets/documents/4/reports/PreTrial_Scale_Val...

Description

The main question this research was designed to address was whether the Pretrial Evaluation Scale used in Hennepin County (synonymous with the Fourth Judicial District) was able to reliably predict both outcome variables (pretrial crime and failure to appear pretrial). Other research questions included whether racial bias was associated with any of the scale items and whether the scale still identifies a similar proportion of those evaluated as needing judicial review.
