Reseña: This paper uses a cost-benefit approach to develop a model that can be used to explore the impact on social costs or social welfare of Pre-Trial Detention. It relies on earlier models of the choice between bail and pre-trial detention (Landes, 1973) and on the literature on the costs of crime (Cohen, 2005) to develop a framework within which policy choices can be analysed.  [Keywords: pretrial detention]
