AbstractThe June 1978 issue of the Alaska Justice Forum presents a subjective analysis of future criminal justice trends in Alaska; based on population shifts, increases in property ownership, and increased reporting, the author predicts that crime will rise in rural areas and decrease in urban areas in upcoming years. Preliminary results of a two-year evaluation by the Alaska Judicial Council of the effects of Alaska's plea bargaining ban are reported. A study prepared for the Governor's Commission on the Administration of Justice determined that the pretrial detention rate for juveniles in Fairbanks was eight times higher than nationally recommended standards. The fifth in a six-part series on the law on confessions discusses voluntary statements and the problems caused by multiple confessions by a defendant. Also included is a digest of recent Alaska Supreme Court opinions in criminal appeals cases, a book review, and a justice training calendar.
