NYC Spends $129M on People with Misdemeanors

80% of the 800 most frequently incarcerated people in New York had misdemeanours as their top charge. That’s according to a study published in the American Journal of Public Health, based on data from 2008 to 2013. Within that time frame, New York spent $129 million on those 800 detainees alone. http://goo.gl/Vzb04p #PopNews
