Arizona and California have passed ballot initiatives that were expected to divert minor, nonviolent drug offenders from incarceration to treatment? But what are characteristics of imprisoned low-level drug offenders? Does the quantity or type of drug involved influenced the prosecution pattern, and are there were differences across racial groups in the prosecution of low-level drug offenders? This study is intended to fill those knowledge gaps.Riley, K. Jack is the author of 'Just Cause or Just Because? Prosecution And Plea-bargaining Resulting In Prison Sentences On Low-level Drug Charges In California And Arizona', published 2005 under ISBN 9780833037787 and ISBN 0833037781.
