People arrested on felony charges in the South are more than twice as likely to face court prosecution and conviction than those elsewhere in the United States, the Justice Department said Friday. For every 1,000 felony arrests in the South, there were 143 convictions, the department said. That compares with an annual conviction rate of 58 per 1,000 in the West, 60 in the Northeast and 78 in the Midwest.
