Note: All defendants who failed to appear in court and were
not returned to the court during the 1-year study period are
counted as fugitives. Some of these defendants may have
been returned to the court at a later date. Rearrest data were
collected for 1 year. Rearrests occurring after the end of this
1-year study period are not included in the table. Information
on rearrests occurring in jurisdictions other than the one granting
the pretrial release was not always available. Detail may not add
to total because of rounding.
-- Less than 0.5%.
