Race and Failure to Appear

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Failure to appear (FTA) is a costly and common occurrence for court systems. Significantly, FTA disproportionately impacts racial/ethnic minorities. This study tests the effectiveness of various interventions designed to reduce defendantsÂ’ FTA rates, with an emphasis on examining racial/ethnic differences in appearance rates. The study also explores the extent to which the relationships between public trust and confidence, procedural justice, and compliance differ across racial/ethnic groups. Reducing FTA rates in populations with historically lower trust and confidence in courts, specifically racial/ethnic minorities, can play a small yet important role in reducing the overrepresentation of minorities in the corrections systems.
