Criminal Justice Reform
Release Date: July 15, 2016

Criminal Justice Reform

The Criminal Justice Reform Information Center contains information related to the efforts of the Judiciary and its criminal justice reform partners in state, county and municipal government to implement bail and speedy trial reform and to form a pretrial services unit.

By Jan. 1, 2017, the state will shift from a system that relies principally on setting monetary bail as a condition of release to a risk-based system that is more objective, and thus fairer to defendants because it is unrelated to their ability to pay monetary bail. The statute also sets deadlines for the timely filing of an indictment and the disposition of criminal charges for incarcerated defendants.

Pilot programs in three vicinages, Camden, Morris/Sussex and Passaic, are scheduled in 2016.
