Criminal justice software code could send you to jail and there’s nothing you can do about it

Thinking about this I can honestly see no reason why the way this determines sentence or parole shouldn't be disclosed. It's not like you can alter the parameters to game the system as you have committed the offence or have a criminal past and those convictions taken into account. The only reason anyone would want to keep it secret is if it's doing something it shouldn't be such as profiling by race.
