Community Justice Center Update
The Chronicle provides a good updated account of how things are going at the Community Justice Center. Among other things, it seems that the attendance rate for drug felony charges is 86%, and for low-level misdemeanors, 22%.
As a comparison, this piece about a probation experiment in Hawaii, and its impact on recidivism reduction, may be of interest.
Props to Aaron Rappaport for the Chron piece, and to the Collaborative Justice blog for the Hawaii piece.
