remember this video that shows austin james vincent attacking a woman as she tried to enter her building in san francisco, back in august 2019. vincent was arrested and charged. >> even after watching the video a judge released him and ordered him to enroll in the san francisco pretrial diversion project. the program supervises people to ensure the. in court to prevent any new crimes from being committed. questions are being raised after the city's board of supervisors voted to approve an $18 million contract to extend its services consistently touted as a success. >> stephanie cera found a new independent assessment is proving otherwise, she's live with the story tonight, stephanie? >> $18 million is a big chunk of money to continue to allocate to a program without having the data to prove it's actually working. and that's what happened in this case, while on the one hand this program appeared to be successful according to the agencies running it, this independent assessment just released is telling a different story.
6:01 pm
a tiny sample of data tell the whole story, a study involving the san francisco pretrial diversion project, the nonprofit is overseen by the sheriff's office, to supervise people charged with a crime but released before trial they appear in court and don't reoffend. in order to do that, the program is required by law to complete was called a public safety assessment or psa, which is a measurement tool that helps the court determine whether someone arrested should remain in custody or be released while their charges are pending. >> this is a scandal in a way that they are trying to mask what happening. >> supervisor stephanie was the only one to vote against approving the $80 million contract why? >> it didn't line up with what we see happening on the streets. >> on june 3
6:02 pm
the chief financial officer for the san francisco sheriff's office presented to the government audit and oversight committee this graph illustrating impressive numbers, notice the small dotted line at the top, indicated from 2016 to 2020, more than 90% of the city's most violent offenders released before trial, did not go on to commit new crimes. the sheriff's office requested the california policy lab which is a research arm of uc berkeley to conduct an analysis of how effective it is in san francisco. essentially double checking their work which is considered standard practice but the results were not only too late, it didn't make the case the program is working as intended. it was understood that less than 10% of people arrested and released before trial reoffend it from 2016 to 2019. but this report found that percentage was actually five times more at 55%. the report revealed the alleged criminals charged with the most
6:03 pm
violent crimes also had the highest rate of reoffending, at 74%. >> what you think after you saw this? >> i was very angry. it's the highest of any other jurisdiction they evaluated, so san francisco did not do well compared to other jurisdictions in the study. >> the resolution is adopted. >> by the time it was released, it was already two weeks after the board of supervisors voted to approve the contract, so why was the data so different? we ask california policy labs lead researcher dr. joanna. >> we have access to data where we can see the very beginning of the case through its resolution, and that allows us to see the bigger picture. >> the doctor explains the sheriff's office only included small samples of data on a quarterly basis and didn't look deeper at the cities pretrial cases from start to finish. yet in committee, hollings admitted quarterly reports aren't the most accurate. >> if people are in the program for longer than a quarter of a year, the quarterly reporting doesn't necessarily reflect
6:04 pm
what's going on. >> then why wasn't that done in the first place? the abc 7 i-team reached out to the ceo of the pretrial diversion program for further comment and received the following statement, the recent validation study of the public safety assessment concerns the entire system and not any one agency in particular, although there is overlap between the population included in the study of those referred to sf pretrial's programs, the study captures a broader sample of individuals released are a number of methods. but the sheriff's office confirmed to the i-team nearly 70% of the cases involved in the study were released to san francisco's pretrial diversion program problem stems locally and as a
6:05 pm
long-term data shows, it's only getting worse. >> people are reoffending at a rate that seems undeniable and this report shows us it's true. >> the report also details close to 30% of the cases, judges do not follow the recommendations made following the safety assessment and this is important. it basically is indicating alleged criminals will be released before trial, even if their risk scores are high, which means there could be a greater likelihood they may commit another crime. >> this is really interesting and eye-opening, stephanie, what is being done right now? >> reaction to this is happening as we speak. supervisor stephanie asked the attorney to draft legislation about all of this. part of it would require a report be released every time the court denies the public safety assessment recommendation essentially allowing an alleged criminal back on the streets before trial, now if this passes, the
6:06 pm
report would have to explain the decision and what evidence was present to suggest that person is not a safety risk to the public anymore. >> a lot more coming on this. on midday live, we ask, how optimistic are you that crime will slow down in the bay area? take a look at these responses, 64%, now to developing news, the search for missing runner in an east bay park is being scaled- back. a fourth day of searching for 37-year-old berkeley resident, philip kreycik, it came up empty-handed today, he was last seen going out for a trail run at pleasanton ridge park on saturday. today's effort by hundreds of personnel and community volunteers was exhaustive. >> we numerous times crossed paths with research teams, community members that were out there, drones, foot, through the air, >> car, family members say he doesn't take it on runs. officials think he's either incapacitated in the park or
