Abstract:

This paper provides an overview of the NIJ-funded project discussed in several of the symposium papers, and presents the results from Phase 1 of that study. The study applies principles of procedural justice to reduce defendants' failure-to-appear rate via a postcard reminder system. Misdemeanor defendants (n=3096) from 12 Nebraska counties were randomly assigned to one of 4 conditions: no-reminder (control), reminder-only, reminder with information about sanctions, and reminder with sanctions plus information about procedural justice. Preliminary results show that any reminder reduces failure-to-appear rates, but the type of reminder has little if any effect.
