Evidence Based Decision Making

August 2015

Eau Claire County has adopted a program called Evidence Based Decision Making.  A component of this program is for Defendants to take a Compas Evaluation.  The criminal process is complicated by itself before adding in the Compas Evaluation.  Depending upon your score on the Compas Evaluation, an offer to resolve the case may be changed.  Also, a Defendant cannot be required to take a Compas Evaluation.  A decision should be made between the Defendant and their lawyer as to whether taking a Compas Evaluation is the best decision for their case.
