Validation of the Fourth Judicial District Juvenile Courtroom Risk Assessment Instrument

Group: Fourth Judicial District Research Division

Description

This study is a validation of the Courtroom RAI and addresses a number of research questions: Does the Courtroom RAI reliably predict pretrial failure, defined as failure to appear and pretrial crime? Does each element predict failure? Do any elements introduce racial or gender bias, but not predict pretrial failure? Do the caps on prior adjudication (a maximum of 6 points for those with two or more felony adjudications) identify those most at risk for pretrial failure? How frequently do judicial overrides occur, and for what reasons? Does the scale alone, or does the judicial decision in conjunction with the scale, produce the most reliable release decision?
