Important Conference Sessions

from PBUS

Next month's PBUS conference, July 28–31, will give you MORE help in fighting pretrial in your state. Starting off with a ‘must-see’ General Session by Dr. Robert Morris, author of The Dallas Study, entitled "Pretrial Release Mechanisms in Dallas County, Texas — Differences in Failure to Appear (FTA) Recidivism/Pretrial Misconduct and Associated Costs of FTA." This session will give you information and statistics that you can use.

The study was conducted on behalf of the Dallas County Criminal Justice Advisory Board. You will hear from Dr. Morris that the study results clearly show that felony defendants not released on commercial bail were 39–56 percent more likely to fail to appear in court and FTA for misdemeanors were similar at 26–32 percent. You will also hear that his study suggests that commercial bonds were the most successful in terms of defendant appearance rates.

The session will be followed by another session on "How to Challenge Pretrial Advocates: The Fallacies of Their Risk Analysis" with Dennis Bartlett and Nick Wachinski. This session will cover in great detail what is wrong with the risk analysis and the resulting fallacies in the arguments that pretrial is using everywhere. more
