District Attorney: Jail Cases Overview 2018-19
Updated 12/12/18 (Data is for October 2018)

District Court
The below table calculates the cost savings by calculating the number of days from the date of the plea to the date the case was originally scheduled. The days are then multiplied by $40.00 (cost per day to house an inmate).

Superior Court
For Superior Court, the estimated median age of cases prosecuted through disposition as felonies in Alamance is 120 days. This is subtracted from the date of the First Appearance. The difference is the cost reduction for that case.

Due to the increased burden on the County Detention Center, a Jail Prosecutor position was established to help speed up the process of defendants who are incarcerated pre-trial.
