Summary

Summary

Penal Code section 1170.45 directs the Judicial Council to report annually on the statewide disposition of criminal cases according to defendants’ race and ethnicity. In accordance with this requirement, Judicial Council staff will submit this annual report on May 20, 2021. The data used in this report come from the Automated Criminal History System, which is a repository of data on dispositions maintained by the California Department of Justice. This report describes patterns seen in criminal case dispositions of adult felony arrests by race/ethnicity and tests whether any available legal or demographic information can account for the patterns seen.
