The Flow of Arrested Adult Defendants through the Manhattan Criminal Court in 1968 and 1969
This study is designed to identify operating problems and to provide a framework for analysis of resource allocation problems and court procedures. The study followed some 5,000 cases through the court, 90 percent of which followed one of eight or nine direct paths through arraignment, hearing, and trial. Numbers of arraignments increased by 15 percent in 1969. Disposition patterns remained the same.
