Congratulations to Haley Arganbright for turning in her honors thesis and presenting her results at the UC Berkeley Department of Psychology Poster Session! The key findings from her thesis titled Risk, Race, and Sentencing: Does Risk Assessment Exacerbate Disparities? suggest that risk assessment does not exacerbate any sentencing disparities based on socioeconomic status.
