A Systemic Problem in Yolo County


There seems to be systemic problems in Yolo County regarding the number of weak cases that get prosecuted, and the dramatic increase of minorities being arrested for sexual crimes.

The percentage of felony complaints that are prosecuted in Yolo County are the highest in the state (99.4%) and almost 20% higher than the state average. While it may appear at first glimpse that Yolo County’s numbers reveal a just fight against crime, the statistics show that Yolo County tends to prosecute almost all felony complaints no matter how weak the case is, even if there is no evidence to substantiate the complaint.
