Bail bonds proposal heads to the full House in North Carolina
from The Charlotte Observer
A bill that would restrict government programs that allow some indigent defendants to be released from jail without posting a bond will now go to the full House for debate in North Carolina. A judiciary subcommittee approved Senate Bill 756, agreeing to impose changes on locally run pretrial release programs in 32 counties. Supporters of the bill say pretrial release programs essentially duplicate the services of the bail bonds industry, and that government should not interfere with private business.
