Study predicts high costs for pre-trial release in Florida
from Florida Politics
As Florida lawmakers consider expanding pre-trial release programs, a new University of Tampa study suggests that the cost could be prohibitive. David Krahl, assistant professor of criminology and criminal justice, said sticking with bail will save the justice system considerable dollars. His study shows surety bonds cost the state almost nothing. Other forms of unsecured pretrial release, meanwhile, cost more than $95 million over a three-year period.
