Last year, almost 73-thousand people in Britain were remanded in custody – kept in jail until their court case.Yet – about half of them should never have been imprisoned.35,000 men, women and children on remand who were either found innocent, or given non-custodial sentences.That accounts for a staggering 71-percent of remand cases in Britain’s lower magistrate courts. And over a quarter of the cases at the senior, crown court.
