<br /> The Reality of Pre-Trial Detention:<br /> Colorado Jail Stories<br /> Report Sponsored By:<br /> Colorado Criminal Defense Institute<br /> “As we speak, close to three quarters of a million people reside in<br /> America’s jail system . . . Across the country, nearly two thirds of all<br /> inmates who crowd our county jails - at an annual cost of roughly nine<br /> billion taxpayer dollars - are defendants awaiting trial. . . . Many of<br /> these individuals are nonviolent, non-felony offenders, charged with crimes<br /> ranging from petty theft to public drug use. And a disproportionate<br /> number of them are poor. They are forced to remain in custody - for<br /> an average of two weeks, and at a considerable expense to taxpayers<br /> – because they simply cannot afford to post the bail required.”<br /> – Attorney General Eric Holder at the National Symposium on Pretrial Justice, 2011.<br /> 750,000 2/3rds = 9Billion Dollars<br /> WAITING<br /> CONVI<a title="ColoradoJailStories_2015Report-pages page 1" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/f4a3bd2f?page=1"> The Reality of Pre-Trial Detention: Colorado Jail</a> <a title="ColoradoJailStories_2015Report-pages page 2" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/f4a3bd2f?page=2"> “As we speak, close to three quarters of a millio</a> <a title="ColoradoJailStories_2015Report-pages page 3" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/f4a3bd2f?page=3"> History of Bail Release from jail prio</a> <a title="ColoradoJailStories_2015Report-pages page 4" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/f4a3bd2f?page=4"> The time spent in jail awaiting trial has a detri</a> <a title="ColoradoJailStories_2015Report-pages page 5" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/f4a3bd2f?page=5"> Reality of Bail Despite Colorado’s re</a> <a title="ColoradoJailStories_2015Report-pages page 6" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/f4a3bd2f?page=6"> STORIES Loss of Jobs and Homes Rodney | I served</a> <a title="ColoradoJailStories_2015Report-pages page 7" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/f4a3bd2f?page=7"> Loss of Jobs and Homes Deandre | A Broncos pla</a> <a title="ColoradoJailStories_2015Report-pages page 8" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/f4a3bd2f?page=8"> STORIES Loss of Personal Belongings Rodney | Dur</a> <a title="ColoradoJailStories_2015Report-pages page 9" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/f4a3bd2f?page=9"> STORIES Disruption to Families Nakita | Before m</a> <a title="ColoradoJailStories_2015Report-pages page 10" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/f4a3bd2f?page=10"> STORIES Reliance on Public Assistance Following </a> <a title="ColoradoJailStories_2015Report-pages page 11" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/f4a3bd2f?page=11"> Reliance on Public Assistance Following Release F</a> <a title="ColoradoJailStories_2015Report-pages page 12" href="http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/f4a3bd2f?page=12"> The Colorado Criminal Defense Institute is a non-</a>
