According to the International Centre for Prison Studies, 20.8% of all prisoners in the U.S. have not stood trial, which makes the United States rank one-hundred and thirty-second out of one-hundred and ninety-six countries ranked in that category. Liberia ranks first, with 97.3% of all prisoners detained without trial.
