Abstract

This article examines the dismissal, conviction, and incarceration rates for about 10,000 male defendants in Los Angeles during the late 1970s and compares these rates for Hispanic, Anglo, and black defendants. On controlling for legal and extra-legal factors and after using multivariate analysis, little difference in the treatment of these defendants is found.
