Incarceration disparity rate for Latino youth in NJ

New Jersey has one of the worst incarceration disparity rates for Latino youth in the country, according to The Sentencing Project’s new fact sheet. Latino youth in the Garden State are five times more likely than white youth to be incarcerated. This research comes just a few weeks after The Sentencing Project released a report showing that black youth in New Jersey are more than 30 times more likely to be incarcerated than their white peers — the worst disparity rate in the country.
