Kentucky Pretrial Services Legislative Impact Report

Kentucky Pretrial Services recently published, Report on Impact of House Bill 463: Outcomes, Challenges and Recommendations. The purpose of the report is to measure the impact of HB 463, which implemented sweeping changes to many aspects of the criminal justice system in Kentucky. The report examined data a year prior and a year after implementation and found that as the number of monitored conditional releases went up, pretrial failures decreased.
