"The series looked at how defendants arrested by New Bedford Police and charged with drug crimes fared in New Bedford District and Superior Courts." The reporter found that a congested court system was leading to a "50-50 chance of conviction, and once convicted, a less than 50 percent chance of going to jail." The reporter documented 600 cases of drug-related arrests in New Bedford in 1999.
