Project Crossroads. Final Report
Trotter, Joseph A., Jr., Ed.
In this pilot program, pretrial manpower services were provided for first offenders in juvenile and adult courts in the District of Columbia. The project offered intensive services to selected youthful arrestees during a 90-day continuance of their trials. At the end of this period charges could be dropped on the recommendation of the project staff. The demonstration phase began in 1968 and ended in February 1971, at which time the project became an independent component of the Superior Court of the District of Columbia.
