Annotation: AN ANALYSIS IS PRESENTED OF THE JUDICIAL PROCESSING OF THE 29 ADULTS ARRESTED FOR ROBBERY IN ADA COUNTY, IDAHO, DURING 1975.
Abstract: THE ANALYSIS, BY THE STATISTICAL ANALYSIS CENTER OF THE STATE LAW ENFORCEMENT PLANNING COMMISSION, WAS PART OF A LARGER STUDY OF ROBBERY ARRESTS IN SIX IDAHO COUNTIES. A SCHEMATIC DIAGRAM SHOWS HOW PERSONS ARRESTED FOR ROBBERY PROCEEDED THROUGH THE STAGES OF THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM, DENOTING THE PERCENTAGE OF THOSE ARRESTED WHO REACHED EACH STATE OF LEGAL PROCEEDINGS. A SECOND, SIMILAR DIAGRAM SHOWS PERCENTAGES BY DECISION POINT (E.G., THE PERCENTAGES OF ALL CONVICTED PERSONS SENTENCED TO PRISON, JAIL, OR PROBATION). A NARRATIVE ACCOUNT COVERS THE STATUS OF ROBBERY ARRESTEES RELATIVE TO CONSIDERATION FOR PROSECUTION, PRETRIAL RELEASE, REPRESENTATION BY LEGAL COUNSEL, RESULTS OF PROSECUTION (DISMISSAL, ACQUITTAL, CONVICTION, GUILTY PLEAS), AND SENTENCING. A TIME FRAME ANALYSIS SHOWS THAT IT REQUIRED AN AVERAGE OF 146.7 DAYS FOR A ROBBERY CASE TO MOVE FROM ARREST TO DISPOSITION. DIFFERENCE IN TIME FRAME AMONG THE COUNTY'S FIVE DISTRICT COURT JUDGES ARE ALSO ANALYZED. SUPPORTING DATA ARE INCLUDED. (LKM)
