    increases in the likelihood of NCA for low-risk defendants when compared to low-risk defendants detained for 1 day or less. The longer low-risk defendants are detained, the more likely they are to have new criminal activity pretrial ( times more likely when held 2 to 3 days, increasing to when held 31 days or more). The decision to release defendants to pretrial supervision is often based on the determination of a defendant’s level of risk (of not appearing in court and/or reoffending before the court date). Some jurisdictions will use certain factors to determine a defendant’s risk classification, such as the seriousness of the current offense or the.

A Pretrial risk assessment helps ensure that low risk defendants are not held in jail awaiting trial and that high risk offenders or those posing a risk to public safety are detained in jail.

Release is allowed for most first-offense arrests for non-violent crimes. Review and consent of a judge may be required for more serious offenses.

Pretrial Services uses a pretrial risk assessment in order to make release recommendations. Under Kentucky law, a pretrial risk assessment is “an objective, research-based, validated assessment tool that measures a defendant’s risk of flight and risk of anticipated criminal conduct while on pretrial release pending adjudication.”.

PSA also may be called upon to supervise defendants on release from other federal districts who reside or work in the District and arranges for defendants who live in other federal districts to be supervised by the federal pretrial services agency in the home district.

Prop. 25 is a referendum on whether to uphold or repeal Senate. For example, in Kentucky, the Pretrial Services agency recommends release on own recognizance in 89% of cases involving low-risk defendants, in 60% of moderate-risk cases, and in 50% of high-risk cases.

For those high-risk defendants who are released, 71% do not have a failure to appear and 86% are not rearrested during the pretrial period. A common requirement for release is bail.

Under that requirement, release depends entirely on whether the defendant can raise the money for bail. Pretrial services programs acknowledge other kinds of insurance that would motivate a defender not to flee, such as a defendant's housing situation, employment, family and other community ties.

Examine how federal pretrial services currently assesses pretrial risk federal criminal defendants pose and the effectiveness of those practices in reducing unwarranted detention and preventing failures to appear and danger to the community while pending trial.

The Supervised Release Program for Sarasota County provides a wide range of supervision programs to support the 12 th Judicial Circuit.
