Public defenders and the American justice system by Paul B Wice( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Through a profile of a reform-minded public defender's office in Newark, NJ, one of the nation's most crime-ridden smaller cities, Wice examines the public defender system and shows how even the smallest reforms, especially those that address quality of life and work for public defenders, can make a big difference. Comparing the smaller defender's office to larger ones in such cities as New York and Chicago, which have not instituted significant or wide-scale reforms, the author illustrates the successes that can be found when change is thoroughly implemented. Flaws remain, but with improved services and work environments, this important component of the overburdened criminal justice system can function more effectively, creating a system that benefits lawyers, defendants, and the community alike."--BOOK JACKET

Pretrial Release Data, 1969 by Stuart S Nagel( )

in Undetermined and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The survey involved asking police chiefs, judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, and bail project directors in 80 cities a variety of questions concerning the processing of arrested persons prior to trial. The research objectives included: 1) developing a model designed to determine the optimum percentage of defendants to hold prior to trial, 2) developing a model designed to make decisions on whether a defendant should be released or held in jail prior to trial, 3) comparing cities having bail reform projects with cities not having them, 4) comparing cities that require arrested persons to provide 10 percent of the bond with cities requiring 100 percent of the bond, and 5) determining the causes and effects of variations across cities in the percentage of defendants held in jail prior to trial. The data were obtained by mailing questionnaires in 1969 to judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, and bail project directors in 80 cities. Of the 280 questionnaires mailed 156 respondents or 56 percent sent back usable questionnaires. The questionnaire recipients were determined by consulting such directories as the A.B.A. Criminal Law Directory and the MartindaleHubbell Legal Directory
