Title: Suspect individuals: The color of men accused of rape within the flow of the criminal justice system
Author: Vargas, JD
Abstract: The article explores to what extent the color of men accused of rape influences decisions made within the criminal justice system. It follows the flow of people and paper through the system's various arenas, including police departments, the Ministerio Publico, and criminal courts. Based on data produced by these bodies, it is concluded that black defendants are discriminated against and that race is a factor which breeds inequality in an accumulative fashion, right from the police stage of the process.
