"This report is the culmination of 18 months of research by the above group. We interviewed over 20 major stakeholders in the Cook County Criminal Justice System and professors in the criminal justice field, read countless criminal justice articles, and visited 5 area Bond Courts and the Cook County Jail. We were motivated by the growing numbers of non-violent detainees at the jail who were languishing there due to their inability to post bond. We saw this as a primary civil rights issue. We also were motivated by the report by the Administrative Office of the Illinois Courts that came up with 40 recommendations for improving justice at the pre-trial level."
