Abstract

This analysis of Fulton County Georgia's pretrial intervention program examines the differences and similarities between the profiles of participants who succeeded or failed in this diversionary program for the year 1991. For the purpose of this study data were collected, tabulated and analyzed cross-sectiona11y on participants, from January through December of 1991, in Fulton County's Project Re-Direction. Specifically, the data included the following characteristics; gender, race, age, marital status, living arrangements, head of household status, income level, educational level, employment status at time of arrest, charges at time of arrest. Findings indicate that there are no significant differences between the two profiles.
