When the Calendar Requires the Release of Insanity Defendants in Oregon, Harm Often Follows

Those freed without ongoing supervision and care because of a state time limit commit crimes at twice the rate as a smaller group freed because the Psychiatric Security Review Board specifically concluded they would not be a danger if on their own, according to a Malheur Enterprise and ProPublica analysis.

About the Local Reporting Network

ProPublica is supporting local and regional newsrooms as they work on important investigative projects affecting their communities. Topics include conflicts of interest, housing, mental health care, criminal justice and workplace safety.

Our New Partners for 2019

ProPublica will work with reporters at 14 news organizations on accountability projects in 2019. Seven will focus on state government or politics; seven will cover issues affecting local communities and regions. ProPublica reimburses one year’s salary and benefits for each of the participating reporters and also supports projects with its expertise in data, research and engagement elements of the work. We will seek proposals for 2020 next fall.
