Pretrial Supervision: Race and Revocation

Volume 86 Number 3
December 2022

In "Pretrial Supervision: Race and Revocation," Bechtel, Connor, and Lowenkamp focus on understanding the characteristics of those on pretrial supervision, the activities on pretrial supervision, and how those relate to revocation. In bivariate models, Black and White defendants have equal revocation rates. However, in multivariate models controlling for risk, legally relevant factors, the types of conditions on supervision, and the number of contacts per month, race is inversely related to revocation.
