Description

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution found extreme disparities in the length of prison sentences depending on the court circuit where the crime was committed, from 1990 to 1997. The series showed that white prisoners get probation more often than blacks even though prior criminal records were about the same and that whites were more likely to avoid prison for serious crimes in Georgia.
