Convicted in Cook

Convicted in Cook is a  project that analyzes five years worth of conviction data received through the Office of the Chief Judge of the Circuit Court of Cook County by the Chicago Justice Project.



Our partners for this project are the Chicago Justice Project, a nonprofit research organization, and FreeGeek Chicago’s Supreme Chi-Town Coding Crew (SC3).

Yana Kunichoff is the project’s analyst and editor, Geoffrey Hing is the senior developer and Brian Peterson is the junior developer.

The Illustrated Press created the illustrations.
